AC condensation is leaking in the cabin

Does anyone have a good web site or info on fixing the AC inside a 02 jeep and the steps to getting to the components in the dash? There is a puddle of water forming at the passenger feet when the AC is running.

All I did was bought some heater tubing and put it on the ac drain under the hood and ran it down to the frame. Never had a problem since.

Sounds like the drain is clogged. Crawl under the right front wheel and clean it out.

That's what I thought about mine but it wasn't clogged it was just that the foam around the pipe that was in the fire wall didn't press against the firewall very hard and caused a leak as I drove. Buying that hose was the best 3 bucks I had spent.

I guess we need to know if there is any water under the jeep when the AC has been running to guess further.

I also have water on my passenger floor on the mat and underneath the carpet. Could I be having the same problem ? Where can I look to pinpoint the leak ?

I guess not. Ask for help and then ignore everyone. Maybe his computer died.

I noticed there is no tubing on the outlet of the firewall for the AC, I will put some tubing on it and see if thats a fix, thanks. I can also smell some coolant in the cabin when driving.

The tubing will work, only thing is when mine was leaking I never smelled coolant. Not sure if smelling the coolant is a bad thing though. Could be normal.

If you smell coolant then your heater core is leaking.
