I have had luck with using a coat hanger and pushing it up from the start of the hose under the truck. I did this on a Cherokee and it fixed the problem in 5 minutes. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: How do I unclog the

If you get underneath the car, you will see the drain tube sticking out...or from the firewall.....get a long piece of wire like a coathanger, straighten it out and work it badck and forth up the tube....this will dislodge any obstruction....make sure that it is also still attached at the ac evaporator unti...follw the tube coming into the vehicle and wher it is joined at the unti....make sure it is still firmly in position and hasnt been kicked accidentally off.......also and as an after thought, check the integrity of the rubber line, as I have had 2 instances where rats have eaten the line.....???......i dont think this is the case with your car, but you never know.......

Good luck, and I hope this helps.

My 96 Toyota Previa has a clogged AC drain line and is leaking into my front pasenger area. I cannot find the drain line to try to unclog. please help!


On my '91 Previa, the drain line comes out of the condenser drain pan directly above the power shaft. The hose makes a turn to go around the power shaft. There's a joint above the curves in the hose. If you take 2 pliers you can wiggle off the bottom piece and then you have a straight shot to take a piece of wire or something and push it up into the drain hose and clear it out. Watch out though, because there's probably water in there and a bunch of nasty junk will come out when you clear it out. Then just put the hose back on the joint & you're good to go.

Water in passenger side floor where is ac condensation plug located


Hi,
Looks like the drain hose from the aircondition/heater blower box is clogged or its been pulled out from the box or the drain hole flooring.
You could clean it by pulling out the rubber hose and get some flexible wire to insert inside the drain hose to unclogged it.
Years of water and dust have accumulated inside the drain, mold might have built up inside it.
Check on those and tell us what happened.
Thank you for using FixYa!

AC leaks water inside


There is a tube that lets the a/c drain and it leads to underneath the car or outside of it, possibly to the engine compartment, and that is how the condensation/water is drained. When this drain tube is clogged then you will have this exact issue. What I would recommend doing is to locate the drain tube, disconnect it and use air to unclog it. You can use either compressed air (you can buy it in a can) or simply blow in it and it should unstop the hose. I hope that this information was useful as that is my goal.

AC condensation leaking into passenger side floor area on 95 Jeep


here is what i find in the condensation drains of the AC systme, leaf matter is the numero uno, if the blower wasn't pulled and the leaf debris cleaned out then the problem will continue until it is cleaned. there is nothing to add, water is a by product of the air cooling process, the colder the air the less water it can hold suspended, so when you cool it it condenses out, that is why all ac systems have a water drain.
