    Has anybody had a problem where when you make a sharp left or right turn you hear a sliding sound under the dashboard and then water starts dripping from under the dashboard.:mad:

    Not enough to mention on this one. Give me time!
    Its probably your heater core bud. You will have to pull all that stuff out from under your dash to see if its a hose or if the core need be replaced. If I were you I would replace the core either way. Its a pain to get too.

    I had a windshield replaced and it wasn't sealed right. Water accumulated behind the dash and would leak onto the floorpan. Check you glass for cracks or leaks. Hope this helps!

    My nissian did the same thing, its your air conditioning condinsation. The line that normally drips under your truck is clogged up.find the line and blow into it and it will unclog.On my 04 tacoma it is located on engine side of firewall on the passenger side down near the header.its a 90degree bend peice of pipe that has end cut off.

    This problem has just began for me. If I make a sharp left, I hear the water underneath the dash and it pours on my passanger side floor. When I make a sharp right, it pours directly on my right foot. It happens everytime. Have any of you been able to correct the problem and how?

    I wouldn't think its a heater core on a 04, check the A/C drain hose on the firewall, look under the dash on the passenger side you can see where the hose exits the cab, mine has no hose just a metal eblow, I slide a thin 8 inch nylon zip tie into the elbow to see if it was blocked.

    Try the small drain tube on the passenger side of the of the truck that goes through the firewall, probably plugged. Mine is doing the same thing right now and the best that everyone has come up with is the plugged tube. You can pull it out and blow out the dirt, thats the best that I've found so far, hope it helps.

    Mine was doing same thing so I checked the tube coming out the fire wall. The tube was turned upside down so I simply turned it so it was facing the ground and water started trickling out immediately.

    Yup there you go. Was going to say plugged water hose coming from the AC unit. It's a fairly common problem i all cars when the hose gets plugged.
