SOURCE: Air Conditioner Drain Clogging Up

You will need to pull the evaporator box out of the car and remove what ever is in there at the drain tube clogging it up. It could be bunch of pine needles or it could be mouse nest stuff in there causing the clogg. You will not know until you take it out. Or instaed of taking it apart, blow compressed air into the drain here and there to keep it open. But that's no garantee way of doing this. Take it apart would be the right way. You could install some kind of a screen on the car air intake which is below the wiper cowling, to prevent mouse from getting into the air duct system and I would also check inside the blower motor housing for any debriss inside of there. So good amount of work if you want to get this done right. Good luck.

-- locate the hole in the engine compartment panel behind the brake lines
-- insert a short length of stiff wire into the hole through the engine compartment panel to unblock the drain hole

SOURCE: How to clean out clogged sunroof drains?

Get some flexible (not solid core) single core electrical cable of a slightly smaller diameter to the drain hole and ease it into the drain hole. Don't force it just gently ease it in. If that doesn't work you can sometimes use an airline to blow it out.

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

Air conditioner leaking in passanger floor boards how do i fix it


Could be the drain tube is partially clogged. It is usually located on the fire-wall or down towards the floor pan under the car. It is usually close to where the A/C lines go thru the fire-wall. About 1/2 inch diameter sticking straight out but may have a 90 degree elbow pointing down.
Also, its been extra hot and humid all over and moisture could be freezing inside the unit when on MAX A/C, then suddenly melting when switched to normal. This opens the outside air door and allows warm/hot air into the unit instead of recirculating the cold air inside the car. The drain may not be able to handle a large, sudden quantity of water.
Perform a "driveway" test. Open the hood, start engine and run the A/C on normal with the windows or doors open. Locate the drain tube by looking for water dripping. Once located twist 2 or 3 pipe cleaners together and verify the tube is clean. Then close the doors/windows and switch to MAX A/C. Check for water dripping. If it stops dripping, water is freezing inside and now you know why!

2003 Mitsubishi Lancer started to leak water on passenger side under dash.


I am guessing that this occurs after you hae been running the Air conditioner and is COLD water. I ran into the same problem and found that the drain line from the Air conditioner pan was clogged.

If I remember correctly, the drain line comes through the Firewall on the drivers side. I was able to push a small piece of tubing back through the line and loosen the clog. A bunch of junk came out and I have driven last summer and so far this year with no more problems,.

Air conditioner condensation is leaking in the car


It is normal for water (condensation) to drip from the car when the air conditioner has been running. This is just a natural reaction of the cool inside meeting the warm outside air. Water collects on teh outside of the condensor and drips down. Nothing to be concerned about.

Water leaks onto floor board from Air Conditioner, where is the air condition relief opening, I am sure the drip line is clogged.


caused by water running out the drip line and not falling off the drip hose due to improper angle.Water will run back down the lower outside of the hose and into the cabin.
Fixed my T&C by putting a tight rubber O ring on the engine side of the drip line neat the tip. Water will hit the O ring and drip off properly.

Air conditioner is working in my 2007 edge but water dripping from dashboard and when I turn you can hear water moving around from behind the dash.


Check the drain hoses. If you are getting water inside the cabin, namely on the passenger side, then you have a clogged or crimped drain hose.

Feel around the passenger side front foot well for wet carpet. Inspect all the hoses and drain plugs to make sure you remove the clog.

1990 toyota camry air conditioner leak on gas pedal


If water is dripping on your pedal the condenser drain is probably clogged and is not draining outside. Check along the firewall for the drain. It will be a rubber tube with a closed end. Pinch the end and there is probably dirt etc. clogging the end. You can cut the tip off and you'll never have this problem again. You can also run the A/C and see if you see a puddle on the ground. You probably will not see one.

There is water dripping on my foot when my foot is on the gas pedal this has just started what can this be?


It could be that the drain that removes water when the a/c evaporator drips is plugged and it is backing up into the passenger compartment.

If it happens when it rains it could be a leaky windshield or water leaking in through the cabin air filter.
