Clogged HVAC drain

I have noticed the on the passenger side outside firewall I did not see any hoses or nipples on it, I did notice in the center of the outside firewall were to black ~1" hoses connecting to two aluminum tubes. Is that where I would remove and clean out the hose/es?
Thank

Mike

Water leak on drivers side in my 1999 Honda Civic DX Coupe


Go to the passenger side or driver side there you need to find the A/C drain tube make sure that it is draining outside and not in the compartment area.This drain hose tends to pop out, so when you have the A.C on you notice there is water draining out but in your case its going in thhe car.

I recently burst a a/c hose in my engine, got the hose replaced and now the flood on my passengers side has a puddle of water all the time. could anyone please tell me whats wrong with it and how i maybe...


All Ac system are meant to drain to the outside! At times mice or other critters get into heating/ac system and make a nest blocking the drain for the ac to outside. Look for the drain which is usually identified by a short hose at the firewall about 3/8-1/2 diameter. Gently take a screwdriver and insert into this hose to clear anything blocking the drain.
This drain is on the passenger side of car and sometimes may take a jack to lift the car up to locate the drain., If you are not having issues because of using ac, then you have a bad heater core, which will be noticed by low coolant level and or engine overheating.

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.

Location of ac drain to try and stop wet floor board on 98 tj?


The problem is with the evaporator drain. There is a, (usually soft flexable), tube that drains condensation from the evaporator to the outside. It is located in the passenger compartment, under the dash. The hose has, (A)-became disconnected from the evaporator. (B)- Has gotten a kink in it. (C)-Became clogged, causing the evaporator to overflow into your passenger floorboard. Your vehicle probably has some covers over these components, you will likely have to remove. Locate the hose, it typically drains just behind and inside your right front wheel. It may be concealed behind a kick panel, or may go thru the floor or firewall. You must find it and follow it to the evaporator and make sure it is not clogged or kinked and is properly connected to the evaporator.

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


PROCEDURE:
(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.

Wet on Passenger side floor when AC is on


Auto ac units have an outside drain for the condensation. If you ever noticed a car running and it looks like it's leaking something on a hot day it's the condensed water from the ac unit draining. What you have is a clogged or disconnected drain hose.
You need to find the hose and drain and reconnect them. Sounds simple, good luck.

There could be water filling in the HVAC intake located in front of the winshield. The drains may be clogged and not releasing rain water. Unfortunately the only way to resolve this problem is removing the entire dashboard and accessing the inner core of the HVAC system.
