Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Galant
The leak seems on the passenger side
There is a drain hole just right (as your driving) of the steering column on the drivers side of the car. You can access this hole from the engine compartment. its right on the firewall. I just had this issue with my 2003 Galant (4 banger) and tried to dislodge the obstruction with a plastic tie, but it would not turn the corner to do the job. <br /> <br /> I then took the carpeting down on the drivers side of the car and found the tube. Its about 1/2 inches in diameter, black and at the lowest point of the plastic drain pan. I drilled a small hole in the tube and stuck a hanger into the hole to dislodge the obstruction. Since I used the plastic tie, I knew the obstruction was towards the cooler. Water started to flow out of the newly drilled hole and through the firewall drain hole. Once the water was drained, I plugged the drilled hole with gasket material. Let it set for a day and it was just like new. <br /> <br /> <br /> It tool about 20 minutes and was easy. Just make sure you drill the hole so that the wire hanger goes the right direction (towards the cooler). <br /> <br /> Good luck.<br /> <br /> Fran<br /> <!-- from fixya rte -->
