Question about 2003 Cadillac CTS
I have a similar problem with a 2003 cadillac cts. The water drips from the bottom area of the glove compartment. If you would stick your hand under and feel around, there is a removable panel ( two small bolts and one star screw) there , you will fell the sponge on the other side of the panel is wet. I removed this panel and ran the air conditioner and place a large mirror on the floor and shine a flash light up but did not see any water dripping.
The Driver side has a similar panel, I removed that also but saw nothing, not even the canister. But the out side pipes from the AC show the canister leads in the hood under ther driver side.
Any way I looked under the car and found the drain hose. It is located under the driver seat area. I tried fishing a coat hanger through it and it went a long way up. If you look on the side panel where the parking brake is located you will see this hose going to the top of the hood. You will need to depress the parking brake for a better view. I tried the Ac bot no condensation water came throug.
I late found a similiar hose on the passenger side. I tried to push the wire in but did not get too far.
One of these hoses drain the Sun ( moon) roof.
I then took a cap from a silicone tune ( u know the screw on tip that you cut at 45 degrees) That I inserted into the tube under car, then I insert a small funnel into the silicone cap , next with my garden ready and flowing , I force water up through the AC drain hose. Dont do too long, 5 to 7 secs is good. You will see the water come through the other drain hose. It is best to have some onlookers. Note some water might flow up to the moon roof drain and into the car so place some towel on the seat.
That works for me.
and good luck
