Question about 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt
Its happening and i had the tube checked for blockage, freind and dealer say it is clear and not kinked. Dealer said there is a bulletin out but it is not a recall. Wanted "about $250" to repair it. Said the housing needed to have a gasket put on. I questioned this since I thought is should be covered due to poor engineering. He mentioned there was a TSB on it but it wouldn't be covered. It is a 2007 with 66,000 ,miles. I guess I will drive without A.C. for a while... Does anyone know if this should be a manufactured covered repair?
That would not be covered because it does not affect safety. the only times that a warranty applies after the standard 3yr/36k warranty is when a safety issue comes up that could affect braking, steering, glass and fire. those TSB's are just references for the technicians to point them in the right direction for repair.

Tips for a great answer:
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.
