Noticed water standing in floorboard on passenger side front and back. Started car and let air conditioning run for about twenty minutes and never saw any water dripping. I thinking itis probably the drain hose. But where is located at?
Do you

Hello,

If you gently slide your hand up under the HVAC system on the passenger side you should feel the drain hose sticking through the floor/firewall. Below is a picture where it is located approximately on your vehicle.

Next, if you look under the hood at the firewall passenger side, you will see your AC lines going into the evaporator. Look straight down from that towards the ground and you will see the drain hose coming from inside the car pointing down. A picture is below.

Next, I would first check the drain for being clogged.

Hello,

Also, it looks like you may have some recalls on your vehicle. The dealer may fix these for free. Please contact the dealer service department, give them the VIN number of your car and have them check on these to see if they apply to you.
