    I'm having same problem. I located the hose: passenger side firewall, easy to see, 4" rubber hose with a 90 degree down turn.

    I removed it and tried to rmove blockage with a long straight piece of wire. The wire gets wet, like it is penetrating the block but only a few drops come out.

    I think the casing must be full of condensation because the interior casing under the glove compartment is covered with condensation, like it is full of cold water.

    Does anyone have a solution or recommendation?

It should be on the passenger side firewall in the engine compartment. It is more than likely easier to see it from under the vehicle.Good Luck!!!!!!

Water leak in my range rover on driver side floor had drain unstop from sunroof what else could it be

You unclogged the sunroof drain line - that is good. Are you sure that the line didn't pull up thru the floorboard. Many vehicles run the drain line down the drives side window pillar and out thru the floorboard. If the hose shrinks with age (as some do), they can pull up into the cabin and leak on the floor.

Wet floorboard 2004 toyota highlander passenger side

Often the floor of the passenger side become wet if the drain pipe of the evaporator is:
- Bent or twisted.
- Clogged or,
- There is any obstruction in its routing.
The drain pipe is a rubber hose about 14 mm in diameter, located just under the evaporator (cooling coil) casing on the passenger side.
The most easiest way to clean the pipe is to take it out, wash it from inside with water or to blow a compressed air slowly through its distal end while leaving it in place under the body.
Note: Keep your eyes away while blowing the air.
Hope that it works.

Air does not blow from my 2000 Grand Prix's air conditioner at all. The air went out temporarily one day and came back, but the next day it would not work at all. I have looked at the blower motor,...

If you look on the firewall on the passenger side there should be a drain hose for the A/C under the evaporator, these can get clogged over time and cause water to puddle on the floorboard. Just take a straightened out clothes hanger and push it up into the drain hose breaking up any blockage in there.

To replace the blower motor, take out carpet under glove box. look under glove box. there should be three screws to take out and then just pull out the old blower motor.

The air conditioner is draining to the driver side floorboard, where is the evaporater drain on vehicle, and how do you unstop it.

The drain is located under the hood on the drivers' side. You will have to get under the vehicle, it is to the left of the steering wheel linkage. A bolt is coming through for the accelerator and there is a hole to the left of the bolt and on the bottom of the hole is where it drains from

Floorboard carpeting gets wet when running the air conditioner...suspect the drain hose to be plugged. Where is it located?

Easiest way to find it is to look under the hood on the firewall on the passenger side of the car near the bottom,The hose just comes out and aims straight down.
