Water is sloshing in box, had drained 2times, I went to Kia dealer, said problably debris in heater AC box, would have to take apart, at th cost starting @ $700.00'im 70 yrs old on a fixed income, can't do that, but have a friend that can fix it if you can help, may be a photo. Kia said they have to remove the dash area, can we drill a hole and vacuumed the junk out. The sloshing is water, it drained out, but keeps blocking the hole up, any suggestions. It cheaper to build a garage, but then I guess I couldn't t drive in the rain, haha Thanks, Nooren

That's a big job I haven't seen one that bad. You can try getting some of that spray foam that cleans the ac box evaporator core etc. It has a hose and nipple to press against the ac drain to spray it in. The instructions are on the can. Its worth a try because pulling the dash ac box etc is a really big job. It could be overwhelming.

Thank you. Where would I purchase the spray from kit? Is the product sticky so that it would attach to any debris?

On eBay type in the search box fjc ac cleaner find the one that says ac evaporator cleaner. Its not sticky it might help break the leaves down so they will come out the drain. Another thing you can do is remove the blower motor and use compressed air and a long blow nozzle to blow the leaves out of the blower motor hole. Before you use the cleaner I cleaned leaves out of the blower holes with air many times. But use the heater to dry the leaves in the ac box real good before trying to blow them out.

Thank you Saturntech 9. You are one of the "car guys". I'll give your idea a try.

Again, many thanks. I may not have to build the garage after all.
