2000 Passat A/C condensation inside car

2000 Passat 4Motion (V6).

I realize there is probably a clogged drain tube. It is humid in S. Mississippi, so I can get a gallon of water in the right passenger footwell in no time.

Rain does not do this, only running the A/C.

I've removed the battery and looked around, and I replaced the fresh air filter. I need help finding the drain tube so I can unclog it.

Pull up front passenger carpet and pad, remove glovebox, 6 or 7 screws in all and unplug lite. Black funnel drains from condensation pan into a flexable rubber boot. Boot is too soft a material for this drain so it squeezes closed not allowing for proper drainage. I have not figured out whether to extend the funnel with a rigid drain tube or pull it up further on the funnel and clap it hopefully opening up the blocked area. VW should have used rigid tubing all the way to the bottom of the car.
There is a transmission module under the carpet which sets in a valley where water collects because of this flaw. VW should recall and repair this if you ask me..

    What I meant was remove glovebox then pull back carpet and pad. Condensation pan is above glovebox.

2009 Mazda 3 found water puddled under floor mat on drivers side, where is it coming from?

Could be condensation from the air conditioner. This normally drains out a tube near the glove box, onto the ground. If this drain tube comes off or is clogged, the water will drain into the interior of the car instead.
Could also be a leak around the windshield, door, or sunroof.
When do you notice it most? Warm humid days, or after a rain or car wash?

Air Conditioning water leak inside

The drainage tube for the evaporator case is plugged causing the the condensation to drain inside instead of outside the car. The car will probably need to be lifted to find the drainage tube. Use a pick to gently remove the debris blocking the tube. You must be very careful as not to puncture the evaporator core.

00' passat glx V6, ABS light is on, STOP light is on and Break light is on - i think my front ABS sensors are bad? how do i make sure? and if thats the sensors how do i change them? where to buy cheap?

The sensors are actually part of the hub/bearing assembly, the entire hub would need replaced.***DO NOT OVER-TORQUE!***
Autozone would probably be the cheapest, however, DO NOT purchase the store brand!

A/C condenser fan...

You should purchase a Hanes manual at a local parts store (less than $20). They include everything you will ever need for repairs.
