    The ac evaporator core water condensation drain is plugged. The drain is at the base of engine firewall passenger side. Get under the vehicle to inspect. It will be a tube about 1/2 inch diameter.

    Thank you! That hose drains water freely to the outside. I unclogged it with air hose a few months ago. i keep carpet pulled back and i use towels on floor board every day to soak up the water draining from the passenger side firewall compartment.
    Could the heater housing possibly not be sealed? If so, can I just pull up the padding at bulkhead to get to it? Or do i have to take dashboard apart? What type if sealant can i use? Something gooey like 'dum-dum' or...??
    THNK YOU for your time and assistance!
