I am a new owner of an old (1999) jeep wrangler. Ever since we got it home today it has been dripping plain water from what appears to be a drain hose coming out of the firewall on the passenger side. It appears to be coming from where the heater attaches inside the cab. Any ideas?

I don't own a TJ so i'm not completely sure but I believe there is a drain for the condenser on that side. Does it have an A/C? Did you test the A/C?

Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

normal - the heater will remove water from the air (I'd bet you have air conditioning). & this water is routed out of the cab via the drain hose you mentioned.

All cars with air conditioning do some form of this.

If it's dripping outside, it's normal...if it's dripping inside, stick your head up there with a flashlight and find out may need to repair the drain hose connecting or reroute it or something.

Thank you all for the feedback. I worry anytime I see a puddle forming under a vehicle, but you have helped calm my fears. I look forward to visiting again.

Thanks for this thread!
I just had one of my radiator hoses replaced on my new 00 wrangler, and I was noticing water after running it for a bit and was worried! Thanks
