Water drip above passenger's feet

I have a 1997 Wrangler Sport, bought new. Several years ago, I noticed that the passenger's floor mat was wet. The dealer said the AC drain was stopped up and fixed it. However, in the past year, the AC housing under the passenger side dash has a tendency to stay moist when the AC is running. Yesterday, with the heater on defrost (the owner's manual says the AC compressor is on with this setting), water was dripping from somewhere under the dash. Any suggestions?

Check the heater core, which is just up above the edge of the carpeting. Water from outside can get there and the spongy,gaskety stuff doesn't stop it very well. I have a leak there myself and haven't had luck stopping it yet.

I also flopped my Jeep this past summer, so I'm wondering if I need some new gasket material under the windshield frame I put on. I've only been able to follow the leak up to the heater core.

Where in OK are ya?

Stillwater. The dealer thinks my problem is the AC drain hose that gets stopped up. I had it cleaned about 5 years ago.

It's probably the drain hose again, it was 5 years and it needed cleaned out now its 5 years later just needs cleaned again.

The AC housing will always have condensation on it if the metal is cooler than the outside air, thats just science. and the AC will turn on automaticly when the defroster is on, the AC pulls out the moisture in the air and kicks out dry air, even with the heat going the AC will still come on and 'condition' the air. It don't hurt nothing and its good to run the AC a few times in the off season to keep the parts moving.
