V70 ac drain line

My windscreen fogs up when it is rainy. Also, it feels like the AC is not functioning. I want to check if the drain hose is clogged, but where is it located? Cheers, Peter

It will be on the bottom of the AC Core Housing and run to the Firewall and the Passenger side of the Console.

Why does my kia picanto 2013 windscreen totally mist up and will only clear when i put ac on hwen it clears i turn ac off then within seconds it mists up again


the windscreen fog is from humid air coming in from the outside
air conditioners work by removing the humidity from the air so if you close of the outside vent then the recirculated air inside the cabin eventually has all the moisture removed
that is why the windscreen clears because there is no moist air to condense on the cold windscreen
now you will say that it is too cold and that is why you turn it off
well try this -- leave the ac on and adjust the heater control to produce lukewarm air no fogging up and not cold
it is called climate control

Air vent schematic


air for the inside of the car comes from the vent at the base of the windscreen or is recirculated inside the car
if you see what appears to be mist, fog or smoke from the ac vents ,it is extra cold air from the ac system that is seen as fog when it hits the air in the car
you will know exhaust fumes by the smell

Where is the ac evap drain line on 2010 Ram Dakota?


the drain hose it at the bottom of the ac box and normally drains back into the tunnel or out by the fire wall
common reasons are gunk inside the box blocking the hose or the hose has been crimped by something under the car

How to get AC to blow cold all the time on my 2000 Volvo v70?


You'll need to have someone check the refrigerant charge with a manifold gauge.
If the low-pressure side is lower than it should be but the high-pressure side is normal or showing higher than it should, your orifice tube may be clogged.
Seriously, start by having the refrigerant pressures checked.

2008 Toyota Tacoma V6 Would the AC drain hose drip water onto the frame even if the AC was not used?


If there was a partial blockage in the drain at the ac box it is possible that water will still drip out over time . However some Toyota ac units use the same box for the heater core so I would be looking for a coolant leak in that area . Check coolant level and have a pressure test done on the coolant system to check for the leak. If the drain is in the frame under the car ,the water may be also from the windscreen plenum chamber that collects water from the windscreen and drains in that area.

Air conditioning clog kia soul


Ac hoses do not clog as they are full of refrigerant gas that is filtered by the receiver drier.. So if you mean the drain hose at the bottom of the ac chamber in the car then remove the hose and blow it out. remove all the gunk from inside the ac chamber and check that the fins of the evaporator are not full of gunk as well. If they are get a house hold ac fin cleaner and clean the evaporator out.

Hi just got an audi a4 2001, 1.9tdi 130bhp, the windows keep fogging up and there doesnt seem to be air coming out of the vent for the front windscreen??? can anyone help??? the back windown is fogging up...


Windows fog up because of the humidity in the car. Run the ac and this removes the humidity from the air and the windows will not fog. If you do not have air flowing from the vents then check that the selection control is moving the vent doors . Check that the vacuum line is connected and not broken.

Wet floor mats and stinky ac/heat unit...


Your drain lines are clogged, and need to be blown out with compressed air. What you are smelling is mold.

Water collecting in driver side pass. compmnt - AC cndnsr drain?


Clogged AC drain hose.

You can see it by opening the hood and looking towards the back firewall.
Its a short black drain hose and will have a good rust spot under it.
To see it in the car you need to remove you dash. Lower your dash. Remove the screw on the right side and you can pull your dash out. The drain hose is located in the upper left side near the center hub and right near the engine firewall. Its a 6 inch black hose with a few bends and stubs out through a hole into the engine compartment. You can easily pull it out. and stick a short screwdriver up into the drain pan to clean it out.
