    the holes are near the top of the case impossible for the water to drain out



Since it was drilled-- verses-- making the proper fix in the past

Your ONLY option-- is completely remove as much as necessary,
until you have found ALL problems & butchered work & reassemble correctly & replace that drilled item

Yes but drill the hole in the passenger compartment on the bottom of the box where it slopes down to the drain. Blow out the hole with compressed air and then plug the hole with a rubber plug or silicon. If you use silicon let it dry for a least 2 hours before running your air conditioner. Now if it happens again you have an access hole to clean out the drain. You want to drill the hole toward the firewall like you were drilling toward the drainhole.

evaporator drain is plugged... Look at the bottom of the firewall on the passenger side... should see a rubber tube (Short, only an inch or so long) coming out... need to squeeze it and see if anything is plugging it.

A/c evaporator case large amount of condensation water on outside of case dripping on passenger floor

Check your cabin air filter, you may find that a mouse has built a nest under the filter and partly plugged the drain. You may need to use a mirror to see for damage. Clean area and install a new air filter.

What could be the cause of water in the front and rear floor board on the passenger side of 1998 jeep grand cherokee? thanks

Have you checked the AC evaporator core (located inside the air ducting) condensation drain at the bottom of the heater box to see if it is clogged, it exits under the truck on the passenger side at the bottom of the firewall, you will need to get under the truck to see it, this would be the common reason for the water issue. The next leak area would be the windshield seal, this is much less common..

The AC evaporator is leaking on my 97 grand cherokee. Floor boards full of water. The evaporator was replaced 2 years ago. What should I do?

The drain tube for the evaporator case is plugged with various debris which allows the normal accumulation of condensed water to overflow the case onto the floorboard. Run a brush or similar tool into the tube which should immediately drain the cavity. If you catch the water in a pan, inspect it for debris. This should work ok for a year or so, then re-clean the drain as needed. The more the AC is run, the more debris will accumulate. Hope this helps!

Location of ac drain to try and stop wet floor board on 98 tj?

The problem is with the evaporator drain. There is a, (usually soft flexable), tube that drains condensation from the evaporator to the outside. It is located in the passenger compartment, under the dash. The hose has, (A)-became disconnected from the evaporator. (B)- Has gotten a kink in it. (C)-Became clogged, causing the evaporator to overflow into your passenger floorboard. Your vehicle probably has some covers over these components, you will likely have to remove. Locate the hose, it typically drains just behind and inside your right front wheel. It may be concealed behind a kick panel, or may go thru the floor or firewall. You must find it and follow it to the evaporator and make sure it is not clogged or kinked and is properly connected to the evaporator.
