Well, I just completed a long trip and when I got home, decided to do an interior detail. Took out the husky liner from the passenger side and the bottom was dripping. I touched the carpet and it was so saturated, that I could drop a pen from 2 inches and it would splash.
So of course I knew this was the AC drain leak. I took it to the dealer this morning, and they had no problem fixing the leak, but the service manager did not want to even consider trying to get a carpet/pad replacement approved. I demanded to speak to the owner, he came over, and I explained that I felt this should not have left the dealership floor when I bought it with a TSB about the problem. He looked at the carpet, and flipped it over, to see the liner was thoroughly soaked. There was a standing pool of water on the floorboard, and it was growing larger as the pad drained. I am not kidding when I say there had to be 4 gallons of water down there, and the carpet was wet all the way to the middle of the backseat passenger foot area.
It took him about 3 seconds to approve the new carpet, without even calling the Nissan agent.

Long story to get to my point...if you have plastic floor liners, you should take them out and check for this problem before it becomes a corrosion and mold issue. And if you do have the problem, do not let them just suck out the carpet and tell you it's fine.

Once I get it back from the carpet replacement, I will fix their fix with the copper pipe modification, but it seems to be working from the dealer fix for now.

I recommend that you also ask what other TSB's were addressed before you took possession of your truck and look through the TSB's yourself to see what could be an issue for you in the future.

Never heard of using copper piping. I used a pvc joint myself...:cheers:
