MITSUBISHI MAGNA CLICK PROBLEM

1996 Mitsubishi Magna • 233,000 miles

G/day. When I drive off or go around a corner I can hear water noises behind the dash that sound like it go's from one side to the other. Is that the water system. Thanks.

OK BOSS. MAYBE YOU DID'NT SEE MY LINK UP THERE----OR MAYBE IT AIN'T WORKIN' FOR YOU

I COPIED IT (FROM ANOTHER POST I ANSWERED) AM NOW PASTING IT BELOW----WE'RE NOT CHECKIN' THE A/C (PER SAT) WE ARE CHECKING IT'S CONDENSATE DRAIN FOR A STOPPAGE

PASTING. IF YOU CAN DE-CYPHER RURAL COUNTRY BOY LINGO!

HAVING DONE THIS TASK ON VEHICLES FOR FRIENDS AND FAMILY

I'VE FOUND THAT "POKING" SOMETHING IN THERE, OR EVEN COMPRESSED AIR. DOES UNSTOP IT LONG!

UNFORTUNATELY, IT MAY NOT LAST A LONG TIME. YOU HAVE JUST "CRAMMED" THE PROBLEM BACK IN, ONLY TO HAUNT YOU AT A LATER DATE.

I HAVE IMPLEMENTED THE USE OF SPECIAL "CJ MEDEVAC-O-MATIC" EQUIPMENT THAT USUALLY LET'S IT WORK A LOT LONGER

ALTHOUGH IT IS SOMEWHAT DISPOSABLE, BUT EZ TO REASSEMBLE. I KEEP SOME OF THE "CUSTOM BENT NOZZLES" AROUND TO USE AGAIN ----ALL RIGGED OUT IN MY GARAGE!

ESPECIALLY FOR USE ON MY MOM'S '86 THUNDERBIRD (WHICH SEEMS TO BE MY BIGGEST CLIENT) THESE CARS WERE BEFORE "CABIN FILTERS" CAME ABOUT, SO 26 YEARS OF DUST AND DIRT HAS GOTTEN IN THERE

I CAN ACCESS HER'S FROM UNDER THE HOOD. YOU MIGHT HAVE TO GET TO YOURS FROM UNDERNEATH (LIKE STRADDLING YOUR FRONT WHEELS OVER A DITCH OR JACK STANDS (THE MORE LEVEL YOUR CAR IS. THE BETTER.(DRAIN/ GRAVITY PLAY IN !)

VERY EZ!

HER'S IS REALLY HARD TO GET TO, WITH YOUR HEAD, FLASHLIGHT AND HANDS ALL IN THE SAME CONFINED AREA, IT'S A PAIN!

I TOOK A PIECE OF 3/8" COPPER TUBING ABOUT 3 FEET LONG (IMMA PLUMBER) AND BENT IT TO CONFORM TO ALL OF THE "WIGGLES" IN ORDER TO GET TO, AND "JUST INSIDE" THE RUBBER A/C CONDENSATE DRAIN SNOUT (THE LAST BEND IN MY TUBING IS A GENTLE SWEEPING "90")

I'VE GOT IT DOWN TO A SCIENCE. GETTING THEM TO "DOCK TOGETHER" IN A TIMELY MANNER

HERE'S THE BEST PART!

SHOVE THE OTHER END OF THE TUBING INSIDE THE OLE SHOP VAC HOSE ABOUT 6 INCHES AND USE DUCT TAPE TO SEAL THE TWO PARTS TOGETHER

CRANK UP THE SHOP-VAC, AND NOT ONLY DO YOU "GRAB" THE STOPPAGE, BUT ALL OF THE WATER REMAINING IN THE HVAC UNIT, COMES OUT AT A HIGH RATE OF FLOW (WHILE THE SHOP-VAC IS STILL ON) THIS DRAGS OUT EVEN MORE CRAP THAT MIGHT BE A FUTURE PROBLEM

USE YOUR IMAGINATION, AND WHAT YOU MIGHT HAVE ON HAND TO MAKE YOUR OWN SUCTION NOZZLEYOUR UNIT MIGHT BE EZier TO ACCESS THAN MY EXAMPLE

I'VE BEEN A JEEP GUY FOREVER (AND NOTHING ELSE). SEE MY BEST ANSWERS IN THE CJ 5 AND CJ 5 FORUMS HERE AT 2CAR

LET ME KNOW HOW IT GOES
