the trim around the cluster has another peice of trim below it on both sides of the steering collum. at the bottom edge of this trim are phillis screws. remove this trim and that will exposethe screws that hold the cluster trim, above the cluster in the same trim is a few more screws that hold the trim on then theirs also snap in clips that you just pull the trim straight out. once removed theirs screws holding the cluster ito the dash (4) once these are outand the steering collum tilted down as far as it will go you can pull the cluster out and tilting it towards you you can reach behind it and disconnect the electrical connectors, then you can work it towards the center of the car and out.
Try cleaning out from under The evaporator (front) coils towards the back so the water can drain underneath the front coils towards the back
Make sure the unit is tilted a little towards the back
Clean drain hole in back too.

water normally condenses in the evaporator .. this runs down to a pan that drains to the outside section of the air conditioner .. there it it used to help cool the condenser and overflow runs out a drain in the back ... your unit is not draining the water properly to the back section .. that is usually caused by the air conditioner being being mounted with its top tilted toward the inside ... it should be level or slightly tilted toward outside for proper drainage ... its also possible that paper or other debree has clogged the drains inside the unit from the front section going to the back section ..
If this is a window unit it has to tilt a little to the back(outside) for the water to drain off the bottom back side. I am suspecting the unit is setting tilted toward the room a little. Look at that first. Hope I was of help to you!! Good luck!!
For some reason, newer AC window units no longer are made with a fluid drain. I think the intent is for the unit to be mounted at a sufficient angle (it MUST be angled back so the fluid drains toward the back of the unit) that the rear (outside) fan kicks the water over the condenser coil and gets rid of it that way, it also increases cooling ability slightly in this manner by misting the condenser coil. I would suggest increasing the angle of the back tilt by adding a 2x4 maybe under the unit to allow it to tilt? Alternately, you can drill a hole in the rear corner of the unit to drain fluid, but this is not recommended for several reasons...
1) It will usually cause rust to start at the drill hole. 2) you could accidentally puncture the coil system while drilling 3) the manufacturer did not make a hole, because one was not intended.
tilt the unit toward the back so it will drain toward the back or you will have a mess on your hands,tilt it just about 1/2 in so the water runs toward the back and drains outside and very important to air filter clean
the problem is caused by water build up at the bottom of the machine due to dust/dirt. Take the machine out, disconnect from the power supply and empty of dishes. The floor will get wet, so you might want to place a large towel under the machine. Now tilt the machine at least 45 degrees towards the back. Watch where the water drips out and tilt further towards that corner. It's best to let the tilted machine rest on a table or bench so you don't have to hold it continuously. Wait about 15min, clean your filters and switch it back on! Worked a treat on mine!
Best of Luck
