When I use the AC, water drips out from underneath both the glove box
and the driver's side onto the floor. I think the collection tube for
the condensation from the AC is plugged [possibly with a spider or some
other bug], however, I don't know which tube to check and how to clear
the tube when I do locate it. HELP please before I have to wear swim
fins when driving my car!

Re: 1995 Honda Accord: AC problem
It would help if you get the car off of the ground so you can examine it from underneath.
The drains are typically plastic tubing visible from the bottom and finding the ojutlet end will give you an idea where to look for the upper end.
If you can locate it and clear it, I would recommend buying a air conditioner 'cleaning kit' from an auto parts store to sanitize the system since it probably has fungus growing in it from having the water drain incompletely.

Ac condensation could be building up and dripping in cab.If so under car on passenger side were floor board meets firewall should be a small hose or maybe even just a hole where water to drip. First i use like a coat hanger to clean out.
I had similar problem with Honda 2000 model. Dashboard light goes out when head light is switched on, AC comes on and off intermediately suggesting partial contact. Solution. Body negative earth wire by the front passenger seat just underneath the glove box towards the door hinges was failing. Reconnected and problem solved
Could be the drain for the ac is plugged up. Usually when this happens the passenger side floor gets wet, but it could be coming out on the driver's side when you take a right turn. The drain should be on the bottom of the firewall near the floor, you should see water dripping onto the ground when the ac is on.
The drain on your evaporator core housing is most likely plugged. Condensation on the evaporator core drips down into the plastic housing and drips onto the ground through a hose on the firewall on the passenger side.
Find the small hose on the firewall in the engine compartment. You should be able to pull off that
hose and see if its stopped up. If the hose is ok, you may need to remove some of the ac ducts under the dash to get to the evaporator core housing to unclog the drain hole.
what kind of fluid is comming out is it antifreeze or water is it from the air conditioner if its water the its a heater gasket. If its only rain water when it rains lift up carpet and look for it ,send back message let me know
Very simple solution. get underneath your vehicle and try to put unsharp object into the A/C drainage holes as they are blocked. That's why the water overflows inside the car. worse senario you got a crack on the Evaporator Housing which is very very rare case.
YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE AIR CONDITIONER SYSTEM DISCHARGED AT THE DEALERSHIP. OR AIR CONDITIONER REPAIR SHOP.YOU ALSO HAVE TO DISABLE YOUR AIR BAGS.YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE EVAPORATOR HOUSING TO GET TO THE EXPANSION VALVE.YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE GLOVE BOX AND GLOVE BOX FRAME.TO GET OUT THE EVAPORATOR HOUSING.REMOVE EVAPORATOR CORE FROM HOUSING TO REMOVE EXPANSION VALVE.THIS JOB IS REALLY A DEALERSHIP JOB.YOUR AC SYSTEM HAS TO BE EVACUATED CHARGED AND LEAK TEST.BEFORE YOUR AC SYSTEM WORK PROPERLY.
I ad this problem fixed and it cost $35. Apparently, this happens when the Freon level is low for some reason. They refilled the Freon and now I have AC on both sides. Don't forget to replace the internal filter in the glove box.
