Chrysler/2002 LXI couple 3.0:AC condensate drain hole?


Drivers floor is wet with no leaks at windows/sun roof. I am guessing this is an ac drain issue. Have been looking for the drain for some time and have yet to locate it. Where is this drain and how/can I prevent my drivers side floor from being wet?

Hi Mike,
My manual doesn't show the drain, but in general there is a condensate collection pan which is ported through the fire wall directly under the HVAC box and it appears as a hole in the firewall/floor pan with a rubber hose attached to it. So I would look under the car at the area under the HVAC unit to find such a rubber hose. Then try cleaning out the lumen of that hole with a rod or stiff small diameter spring. Also, check to be sure that you are not loosing coolant by smelling the moisture on the floor/rug. That would be a leak in the coolant system inside the HVAC box or at the hose fittings for the coolant lines.
Please read the PS (below) and respond to it.

Repair questions, but I would prefer that you use the category "Auto Repair" rather than this "Cars" category. Free, fast repair information (20-minute average answer time) for your 1982-2010 Chrysler/Dodge car, minivan, SUV.

Repair advice to help you diagnose, minimize repair costs, or do-it-yourself.

I have do-it-yourself experience (50+ years) and a library of 100 factory shop manuals/dozen multi-model CD's.

Problems with electronically controlled engines and transmissions as well as body wiring problems are my specialty. As regards Dodge trucks and Jeeps I only have manuals for the '04-'07 model years so am limited as to specifics about those vehicles outside that time frame.

There are answers on file to more than thirty-five thousand Chrysler questions at your finger tips: put a few key words in the "find" box (above) or click on "view past answers" for a chronological list of my q and a's. If you find a past answer that is helpful but not fully so, DON'T USE the "Add to This Answer"; if you still have a question ask it directly to me.

I take questions seven days a week between 8AM and 9PM Central Time. During those hours "Maxed Out" means I am answering another question so try again later.
