Indeed - NO HOSE (just end of small white plastic pipe that sticks out) attached to it on my 2002 Montero XLS (3.8, manual A/C), can be reached from top of the enginge compartment (driver's side - central line on the firewall). Just below it runs a black middle size hose (not attached to firewall). The water comming out of a drain hits the mentioned hose.
It can be seen only with a help of additional light just below 2 transversal hoses/pipes that go along the firewall. Little WHITE plastic pipe end just below those two piper. There is just a few milimeter space over thos two transveral sttel-pipes to see the (white) drain below them.
To access it with more comfort You need to disconnect 2 harnesses/cable for (not) easy hand access... You can (barely !) reach it with a middle (!) finger but no much space to operate any tool there.
So use a firm stiff steel wire (I used wire from a cloth hanger) a bit rounded at the end to access it remotelly and then push/pull a few times until you see water comming out.
You need a blanket to lay down on the engine to reach this. The engine must be cold otherwihise You WILL burn Your hand.
The stiff steel wire can be leaved there (like a dip-stick) for futher non-problematic access re-dos. :-)
