    Ok guys, so my car has started doing something that needs fixed immediately. Everytime I turn it pours what seems like water out of my passenger side dash and my floorboard is straight up soaking wet. Has anyone else ever had this happen? Please help me out if so!

    There’s been no coolant loss either so I would assume it to be possibly condensation. How does the water heater assembly come apart?

    There should be a drain line for the ac condenser passing through the firewall. Make sure its not disconnected, or clogged.

    You wouldn’t know where it comes through outside the car do you? I haven’t had a chance to really dig into it enough. I couldn’t seem to find it when I did look though and haven’t been able to find out where it’s located.

    Jam a coathanger up the hole to dislodge whatever is stuck in there once you find it. Also, replace your cabin air filter. It's probably not doing its job if that line got clogged.

    I ran wire into it and water ran out a decent bit but I didn’t notice anything that would clog it up. And alright how do I go about changing that out do you know?

    I understand it is simplistic I just haven’t looked into it at all to know where it was located at. I’ve done my downpipe install and all the work to my car myself so im capable I just asked without looking first...
