Question about 1990 Dodge Dakota
There are few possibilities that are to be checked to locate the leak.
1) There is a cover under the dash, that goes to evaporator.It has a seal.If this seal is broken, the water will leak.
2) Other possibility is the drain hose on firewall in engine compartment is plugged up or turned upside down.
The drain hose is located on the passengers side on the firewall. The drain tube , It's located on the firewall right behind the transmission dipstick, more towards the center, only sticks out about an inch or so, and is about 3/4" around. You probably can't see it from the bottom of the truck. Shine a light down there, it looks sort of like a shotgun barrel just barely poking through the firewall.----------
The condensate drain at the bottom of the plenum is blocked. It can become blocked from different causes but the fix is the same in most cases. Stick a wire up the drain tube to clear it. You'll probably need to put your car on a lift to see where the drain is.-------
Its hard to see and only sticks out about an inch and is behind a heat shield. It is at the edge of the heat shield so you may have to bend back the heat shield a little to where you can get something down into the drain tube.Once the clogged drain or loose drain tube is cleaned and re-fitted.the leak should stop. -------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

If your vehicle
has an A/C drain hose, it will be located on the engine side of the
firewall, below where the two A/C lines go through the firewall.
GROUP: Heating & A/C
DATE: Nov. 18, 1994
SUBJECT: Condensate Drain Tube Eliminated
1994-1995 (AN) Dakota
1993-1995 (XJ) Cherokee
DISCUSSION: The above vehicles no longer use an air conditioner condensate drain tube. Cherokee's built after September 3, 1993 (MDH 09-03-xx) and Dakota's built after June 1, 1994 (MDH 06-01-xx) no longer need the condensate drain tube. Do not install in the field or submit a shortage and error request.
Somewhere just below
the Suction and Liquid Lines you will see a small black hose coming
through the firewall and pointing down. This is the A/C drain hose. Take
a piece of wire and snake out the hose. This will clear the blockage
and allow the water to drain out.
You may have to remove the drain hose completely. If so, it just pulls right out and you can slip it back on easily enough.
