1996 Nissan Maxima Question: cowl vent drain plug..where is it and how do you get to it?

Most likely AC drain pluged. When running AC see if water drips out onto ground.
It should! If not then check the drain,see mechanic.

yes..water is dripping under the car toward the back of engine compartment.

Ok that rules out the ac drain. Going to be hard to make another
gess. Windshield leak? The cowl drain is under the COWL the
plastic piece at the bottom of windshield where the wipers come
out. Do you park near say pine trees or the like that may shed
and stop up drain? May take flashlight and look through cowl
webbing to see.GOOD LUCK.

There is no drain plug just a drain path.

Yes,then run water into cavity to see that it runs out on ground.
