The A/C evaporator drain tube is most likely blocked. If you have a V6, you're in for a real treat trying to reach the thing to clear it. The tube is on the firewall behind the driver's side rear motor mount, and slightly to the left as you're facing the firewall. It is a 1/2" diameter metal tube projecting about 1/2" from the firewall, and is covered by the firewall sound and heat blocking material which has to be folded back to reach the tube. A pair of what I believe are brake lines are one finger's-width in front of it, making it VERY difficult to get to the tube. (Brilliant design, Mitsubishi!) If you are very dexterous, you can slip a small piece of wire or a cable tie under the brake lines and into the tube from the front to try and clear it. Good Luck!

I can't believe I found a site that talks about the exact problem I'm having with my '02 Lancer. It must be a common problem for anyone living in a humid climate. The hurricanes here in Texas produce this problem almost state-wide as all of our A/C units are flowing water like crazy right now.
I'd like to expand on the solution that briankc43 so graciously provided above. The drain tube for the condensate reservoir is, indeed, found on the firewall on the driver's side (left hand drive vehicles if there's another). It's a small (1-1/2") rubber tube bent 90 degrees pointing down. In order to get to this tube you will probably have to remove the air intake tube that houses the (I'm guessing here) MAF sensor in order to get your hand down to that area. Once you've cleared the way for your hand the tube pulls off easily from the reservoir drain port that pokes through the firewall. When I did this there must have been nearly 1/2 gallon of water that flowed out! If you have a small, narrow bottle brush it would work nicely raking what muck remains in the interior of the condensate reservior. At this time I do not know if there's any way to introduce more water into the reservoir in order to flush it but this should be sufficient. I guess you could rig a small tube and funnel or syringe to squirt water into the drain port. If this works it may not be such a bad idea to mix a very small amount of bleach into the flushing water to help kill off any fungus as it's a pretty darn good place to grow a fine crop of it!
Because the drain tube narrows by about 1/2 at its end it encourages stop-ups with the dirt and fungus that grows and is deposited in the reservior over time. I thought about leaving the drain hose off but if you did you'd leave yourself open to the possiblity of water getting back into the interior during wet conditions (water splashing up on the firewall) especially if the foam seal on the inside of the firewall was damaged or deteriorated.
I hope this helps those that have been monitoring this site.

You have a bad "heater core". It will leak inside, and outside once the enclosure fills. You need to replace it, or bypass it before your engine overheats and causes a lot more damage. If you're driving the vehicle daily, make sure you check and fill your coolant before you drive it.

Popular question. It's hidden unlike any other car. Outlet is behind driver side brake lines 1/2 way up in a frame weldment bracket hole. Impossible to get to. My dealer drilled a hole, inside driverside airdistribution housing (remove panel next to your accelerator leg) and blew air in it. Lasted 5 min. and plugged again. I found lowest point in righthand corner of housing. You can see molded round shape in housing that leads into firewall. Used hole drilled in line towards back of housing and ran a stiff wire down molded round shape. It went past firewall, felt it unclog some goo, and massive amount of water came out. Sill working.
