a/c problem leakage Sign In

i have a 2001 chevy cavaleir 2.2 auto--- water is leaking inside onto carpet on passenger side i looked and i saw it coming from heater coil so i just bypassed the heater core for now, i live in arizona so as of now the heater is not needed ,but it is still leaking i figured it is just the water left over in the coil but its still a large amount of water still leaking

This is probably condensate (water) normally made by A/C and is clean water. Anti-freeze would have an odor and not clean up easily. The drain for the water is plugged up and needs to be cleared. It may look like a small rubber elbow or elephant nose and has plugged with dirt or some kind of debris. If you can find it clear it out carefully with plastic like a wire tie as coat hangar could damage the evaperator core and trust me you don't want that!
