Look very carefully under the firewall above the steering rack below the glovebox. The drain tube is very short.

SOURCE: can't find a/c water drain tube on 1999 plymouth

They can be kind of hard to find but are located down quite low on the engine side of the fire wall at the passenger side, Look for a small short open ended rubber hose [although sometimes the hose is missing] and you'll usually find it's plugged with bugs or crud. A puff of compressed air is usually all it takes to clear the hose. Even I have a tough time finding them sometimes!

Location of ac drain tube

You will need to raise the car up off the ground and support it with jack stands and crawl under the passenger side to see the AC condensation drain tube at the bottom of the engine bulkhead/firewall. If it is clogged with bits of leaves you will need to remove the AC blower motor and clean out the enclosure that motor sits in and clean the drain while the motor and squirrel cage blower wheel are removed..

Park your car on a flat surface with adequate lighting, and engage the emergency brake. Then raise the car with a jack. Place jack stands below the frame near the front wheels for added security.

  • 2 Cut about 1 foot of metal wire and form a hook at one of the ends. The hook will be used to grab hold of any clog in the tube.
  • 3 Go underneath the engine and locate the AC drain tube, which is a small rubber hose. Detach the tube from the engine so that you have access to the inside, where the clog will be located.
  • 4 Insert the wire, hook first, into the AC drain tube. Do not force the wire, but twist, push and pull the wire within the drain tube until you are able to remove the clog.
  • 5 Allow water to drain from the tube after the clog has been removed. Reattach the drain tube to the engine. Move out from underneath the vehicle, then remove the jack stands and lower the vehicle back to the ground. Perform a test drive.

    Drivers and passenger side floorboard wet from air conditioner condensation. How can i fix?

    There is always drain tube because AC always condenses water.
    The drain tube must have become disconnected. Look underneath the car and you will see it pointing down.

    We found water & mildew on floor board of passanger side of 2001 Chevy Blazer LS. We figured that the a/c evaporator line is clogged, but where is it located? How do you get to it? Any info greatly...

    The ac drains to the outside thru the firewall under the outside part of the heat/ac box under the hood. Tube can get clogged. Does your car have a sun roof? the drain tubes on a sun roof can also come off and put water into the cabin.

    Ac drain leaking in floor

    The drain tube is clogged.
    It is located under the car on the passenger side, under the dashboard.
    Use a straightened-out metal coat hanger wire; the twisted screw end works great for this task. Yes, you will get your face a little wet from splash, so have a dry towel handy.

    Exact location of A/C drain tube

    Open hood, near center on firewall at back of engine, below and about midway between the AC lines and steering column, a small rubber "L" nipple should be visible, if not, line is draining under dash at the firewall, if it is, it may be clogged again. Find a mechanic that you trust and have them them clean it out for you.
