Wet Feet

What does it mean when you wash the car and water comes through the heater vent onto your foot? (Maybe a large jigger's worth.)

I had squirted a hose into those vents at the base of the front windshield. Those vents the A/C air intake, right? Shouldn't you be able to squirt water through there to rinse out the condensation pan?

Do not EVER direct water into the vents in front of the front windshield on purpose! They are for air, not water. They can handle rain and the amount of water from a car wash, but never water directly shot in. If you check your owners manual it even tells you to turn the ACC to OFF when going through a car wash to keep the water out.

My understanding was that if you were cleaning out your drains, that you should run plenty of water through there.
