I have a 1993 SDV and my a/c drain is apparently clogged because it is in draining into the floorboard. I searched the forum trying to find directions on where to locate the a/c drain hose. I got under the car (as much as I could) to try to find this a/c hose. Does anyone have a picture or a better description of where this thing is, so I can clean it out.

By they way, it is over 100 degrees and very humid, so I am getting LOTS of water in the floorboard.

Thanks,

No ideas for a 93, BUT, if you can get the car up on a 4-point lift it makes this job easier........start looking under the center console passenger side near the firewall area - a drain tube with maybe a pinched flapper valve on the end. Cut off the flapper. Maybe toward the passenger fenderwell area.....

Yes, I do wish I could get it on a lift. I will take it somewhere if I have to. B

What do you mean the center console? No center console in my SDV.

Sort of like the front of what used to be the "transmission tunnel".

According to the FSM, "condensation is drained through a small hole in the bottom of the evaporator case."
Good luck with finding That! :eek:

If it's LOTS of water, are you sure the heater core/ hoses aren't leaking?

Well AmenCaddy, that does make it sound like it will be harder to find.

As far as the heater core, I know that is not the case. The water is completely clear and its cold (like it is condensing on the cold lines) and I am not seeing any dripping underneath the car when the a/c is on (meaning that the a/c condensate is not draining outside the car, but instead in my floorboard!).

just get under it and start looking around under the firewall on the passengers half of the car. You should find it.

Well, I found it. I turned the wheel as far as I could, so the passenger tire was out of the way. I felt all around on fire wall and finally found it. Cleaned it out and now there is no more leaking!
