Water Leak and Sloshing Due to Clogged Evaporator Drain on Jeep Grand Cherokee

The AC evaporator drain commonly clogs and causes water to leak onto the passenger side floor. A sloshing noise may also be heard from the water inside the heater housing. Decaying organic debris in the housing may cause an odor. A service bulletin (TSB 24-06-96) was released; it describes how to clean the drain tube without removing the heater AC housing.

My passenger side floor is always wet from running the AC. It seems to be coming in from the outside of the floor, as water always drips in that location. I can not see anything leaking on the inside of the jeep and the spot that is always wet is in the middle of the floor or towards the front of the passenger side seat!

wet floor board on passanger side, not when it rains, the next day. will check evaporator seal
Found an Internet website with instructions to install a hose on the end of the ac drain tube. Problem is that the original tube does not aim down enough so the water drips from the inside of the tube and backwards along the tube underside back into the the interior because the the gasket for the tube at the firewall deteriorates. Have to cut into wheel well to find the tube. No access from anywhere it is in a hidden crevice. Once we attached a piece oh hose aimed down with a hose clamp problem resolved.
