My 2003 Highlander has a line coming out the firewall and points down. I am dripping liquid at a pretty good clip and I do not have the air conditioning on. What is this?

If you run the defrost the a/c comes on and will cause the condensate to drip. Clear is just water. Is there any color to the fluid? Red or Pink would indicate coolant and it is possible the heater core might be leaking.

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.

2003 matrix condenser hose

Have the drain hose blown out, this looks like the drain hose is plugged, that would be the first thing to check, start the car and turn on the a/c and let it run for about 20min and see if water is dripping out on to ground from passenger side, if it is then you may have another problem but if you dont see a good constant drip then drain needs cleaning. this is done with a small amount of air blown into drain hose, your regular repair shop should do this for free, if you are a customer or if not how much can they charge for 5 min of time. good day.

2003 Toyota Landcruiser - dripping water from AC unit inside car, passenger floor board...AC works fine...clogged drain line ???

yes the drain line is clogged,, its located along the firewall and is a bear to see,, if you get under the vehicle, and look along the edge you'll see it don't blow air into it , that will just make the clog worse, take a wire, and gently ease it up into the tube, working slowly , be ready to get wet,, once you loosen the clog the water behind it will flush it out, and sometimes there is quite a lot

1993 Toyota Corolla Dx: driving over labor day weekend, had the AC on for longer than i've normally had it on and noticed water on my passenger side floor mat. Then i looked and it was leaking from...

The drain on your evaporator core housing is most likely plugged. Condensation on the evaporator core drips down into the plastic housing and drips onto the ground through a hose on the firewall on the
passenger side.

Find the small hose on the firewall in the engine compartment. You should be able to pull off that
hose and see if its stopped up. If the hose is ok, you may need to remove some of the ac ducts
under the dash to get to the evaporator core housing to unclog the drain hole.

I have no doubt that thats the problem.

Interior water dripping on passenger side

I have researched this problem online and have noticed many people have the same issue with this car. I have made a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and suggest you do the same.

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.
