1997 Ford Escort Q&A
1997 Ford Escort Question: i have water in the fan housing for the air conditioner. how do i get rid of it.
why is there water in the fan compartment? should there be a drain hose to get rid of the condisation. if the is where is the hose located under the car. i think the hose is plugged. When i unscrew the housing for the fan i get about a cup and a half of water to run out. i can't find a drain for the fan compartment. how the water is getting in to this compartment? this happens after i run the a/c for a couple of hours or a couple of days use. - tom2ts
The air evaporator creates condensation which is usually exits the housing by a little tube exits the firewall into the engine compartment and falls harmlessly to the ground this is normal if the a/c is working correctly. Kneel at the passenger side of the car with the door open look under the dash under the glove box area with a flash light perhaps pull back the carpet a little it should be obvious, you will find the hose kinked or some how plugged. - patrick mannion
