Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder
I have a 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GS, and for the past few months the driver's side carpet gets wet when the A/C is on. The A/C still works great, so I don't think it's a leak, I think it's a drainage problem. My regular mechanic couldn't solve the problem, so I'm wondering if anyone can give me any tips on trying to find the drain hose and see if I can determine if it's clogged, and possibly clear the clog.
The problem is condensation on the evaporator coil not being caught and drained to the outside. There is a catch-pan under the evaporator coil where condensate should collect, and from that catch pan there is a drain hose leading to underneath the floor pan where it should then drain to the ground.
If that hose has become disconnected, clogged, cracked or pulled from it's exit hole, that water will collect on your floor and cause the problem you have described.
I'd be disappointed in a mechanic who could not solve such a simple and common problem... and I'd be looking for a new one!!!
Hope this sheds some light on the issue and helps you get it resolved. Do not hesitate to ask if you have further questions or to post comments, let us know how it goes, and please be so kind as to rate my advice....
Thanks and good luck!
