Air Conditioning problem
1999 Acura CL 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive 54982 miles

I am getting water leaking from the AC unit behind the glove compartment onto the passenger side floor mat. Also it is dripping onto the drivers feet.
I have checked with a garden hose on the windshield and the engine compartment fire wall. This shows no leaks.
I need to know if this is caused by a blocked drain or something internal of the AC unit.

Do you
have the same problem?

Hi prandyb2,

Check the evaporator drain hose for clogging or if it is dislodged.

Thanks for the reply. Where do I look for the drain tubes on the evaporator?

At the lowest part of the evaporator housing, under the glove box there is a drain hose that leads out to the firewall into the engine compartment.

Check if it is detached. You would need to flip the carpet out to have a better view.

Right on the money with your answer. Detached drain tube and got the air hose and also fished a wire into the housing unit. All looks good and draining onto ground like it should. Floor and carpet drying out.

Thanks
