Hello I have a 2011 edge limited and have had a flapping sound near the pax side dash for months. Now when I have the AC on and turn the wheel to the left I hear a rubbing sound. The pax floorboard is wet. Please help. I looked under the hood and verified that the air intake wasn't clogged. Haven't looked under the car to verify because I'm not sure if that's the problem. Thanks

don't know about the rubbing noise, but if it is watery fluid, then it may be a backed up evap drain causing fluid to spill over through the dash into the blower motor and the floor.  there is a joint in the evap drain line (center console, near gas pedal) that can be use to drain the line/expel the blockage.

Generally of the drivers side is wet you would suspect the HVAC drain. By "pax", if your referring to the passenger side being wet, you may have developed a leak around the moon roof (if equipped). Others have reported it runs down the channel into the floor boards. Another place these cars leak is in the door hinge area.

Couple of thoughts on the flapping noise. One could be one of the front mud flaps. Another could be a part of the underbelly cover had come loose.

Test is easy enough, wiggle the mud flaps and see if you can recreate. And/or look under the car and see if the underside looks completely intact. (Usualky it's just a fastener or two that's been lost, easy fix.

Rubbing sound turning left - mud flap loose, snow, ice buildup. Plastic fender well may be suspect, but that would be somewhat extreme.

Still, should be visible, back the car out of the garage, turn hard left and do a visual in both front wheelwells.

thank you! I appreciate the help. The leak was a clogged A.C. line. I'll keep trouble shooting the noise issue.
