    A garage has tryed to fix the problem 2 times but it still gets wet. I'm almost ready to give the car away. No more Chyr. products for me.

    Leaking, passenger side feet, dripping from above and also running into the carpet, noted when A/C running. Not an issue in Colorado...but visiting Louisiana...a MAJOR problem here, sponging out upwards of 2 cups of water from front passenger seat compartment after a 1-2 hour drive, not to mention the wet shows, pant-legs, etc. WHERE exactly is this drainage tube and how do I get to it in order to unblock it, if that might be the problems?????

    Problem: Water pools in passenger floor board when AC has been running.
    Solution: OK...My dad and I were able to stop the leak. He has a wrecker so we lifted the front end of the car up off the ground. I went to the local hardware store and got a 12 inch piece of plastic hose (the thick stuff) sorry I don't remember the exact size...and a hose clamp. There is a black plug (for lack of a better word) It is the drain where the water from your ac is supposed to drain out. It comes out of my car (2004 Sebring) on the passenger side. You want the car to be cool as it is hard to get to, and you can get burned trying to get to it. We took that plug off. there was a little metal tube/hose that stuck out. We took and put the plastic hose I purchased and used the hose clamp to hold it on. Note: it was a very snug fit. It has been over a month and no more leaks. Hope this can help you.

    when a/c runs the passenger floor board gets soak all the way to the rear floor board. Shop blows out the line every time I get an oil change. The service bulletin issued for this problem is WAY TOO expensive to get done. Been driving it this way for 3 summers and I live in Florida. Every weekend I use a wet vac to soak up the water, about a gallon each time.
