A/C leaves cold water in floorboard

Sounds like the HVAC compartment drain is clogged. It is located on the firewall in the engine compartment, on the passenger side. It is a short rubber hose, clean it with a piece of wire hanger or a pencil.

How to fix leakage of AC on passenger side of Toyota Yaris 2008

It sounds like the evaporator drain tube is blocked or came off the duct inside, pull the carpet back and locate the rubber drain hose on the bottom of the evaporator housing, the hose should go through the firewall so water can drain out, the hose may have become disconnected before the firewall or it come off at the evap housing, pull the hose of the evaporator if water comes out make sure the hose goes out through the firewall and is not clogged.

Rain water leaking from under glove box, heater area, is not antifreeqe, iam sure it is rain water

The evaporator drain might be clogged. Get under the truck or open the hood and look for a rubber nipple coming out of the firewall on the passengers side. Try sticking something in this hole to release whatever might be stuck in there, usually leaves or sediment. Be careful, don't go crazy pocking something in there. The evaporator core might be near the drain hole, you don't want to poke a hole in it.

I have been told the air conditioning drains are plugged. How do I clean them out?

(1) Get under truck from passenger side;
(2) Look near front (engine) end of transmission -- there is a rubber pyramid-shaped piece without anything else near it (see picture one). This is the drain nipple.
(3) To clear a clogged nipple, use your finger or a small tool to wiggle the nipple until the mud, dirt, debris, etc. is freed, allowing water to flow out. This water is dirty and may be warm.
(4) Allow water to drain out, attempting to dodge as much as possible.
(5) Check periodically to ensure water flows from the drain line, cleaning as necessary.
(6) Wipe arms off with towel.

Water is drippin on floor boards in front. I was told it was a clogged drain in HVAC system. Can you tell me how to go about unclogging the drain

It should be located on the passenger side firewall.Just follow your a/c lines until they enter the firewall of your car,have a flashlight handy and look for a piece of black rubber sticking out(maybe 1" dia.and black.Once you locate it use a stiff wire or small stick to go into the opening and move it around to see if it is clogged.
