When using the A/C the drivers side floor board fills with water. There is no water on the ground under the car as you would expect.

Same problem, but I can not locate the evaporator drain hose. This Stratus has the 3.0. engine and auto transmission.

I live in South GA and run the AC constantly in the summer time. Every summer the AC drain gets clogged and water builds up in the passenger floor board. I have measured as much as 2.5 inches in the rear passenger floor.

no solution. I will take to the dealer now. I tried to clear the drain tube twice, the last time I took it to a repair shop and they put it on a lift and showed me the drain tube. It is draining so nothing more can be done here. The floor is soping wet all the time. The carpet is now ruined stained brown, and stinks. This model has a procedure at Crysler that call for a repair kit that they use in theie shop. Cost will high I'm sure but I like the car, so here goes.

A/C drain clogged up. I fixed it a couple of times by using blow gun on air compressor to blow into the drain tube under the car. The water flowed out immediately after blowing it. Eventually whatever is floating loose in there clogged it up and it has been clogged up sense. Very aggravating indeed!!
