twister4399 Good luck mine was still dripping found it was cracked next to the drain hookup. I suppose you could try a hole with a hose barb and just drain from there?

Yeah that's what I figured it would come to, I was hoping there was some easy fix. I need a day when its nice and sunny. Our garage is filled to the brim with crap so no vehicle will fit and we have rain on the forecast for the next week.

brandon. It's leaking from the end most a/c vents that are aimed at the passengers and from the a/c vents that are aimed at the footwells also. It dumped all night so if it stops tomorrow I'll see if I can see anything under the dash.

twister4399 JB weld worked ok. Still have a small drip but I think some silicone around the hose now will stop the drip. Is yours leaking out the sides or from the lower bottom?

Mine is not the hood vent, I actually broke the plastic piece it connects into trying to pull it off yesterday only to find the whole thing was very clean and clear. Tomorrow when I have time I'll see if I can get to the a/c vent to clean it out better.

twister4399 I just had this issue yesterday with water dripping in the middle if the transmission hump. Stick your head under the dash and there should be big rubber house in the middle and lower portion of the ac housing. My problem is the plastic nipple the hose attached to ha broken so condensation was just running in the floor. Tonight I have attempted to repair it with JB weld. If yours is just clogged you can just remove the hose off the plastic nipple on the ac housing and pull the hose out of the firewall and check it for blockage. Careful with the nipple though as it must be brittle.

brandon. Do you know where they cleaned it from? I'm assuming I wouldn't want to blow air in from the outside of the drain. After reading about a bunch of TJ problems I stuck a wire up it from the outside and it didn't have any residue but I guess it could be clogged further up.

jquinn83 I had this exact problem in my Sentra and it turned out to be a clogged A/C drain. The shop needed to take an air compressor to it to clear the clog and after that there was no more water. I know you said it is not clogged but it has to be something with the A/C because it only happens when you use the A/C and the water is frigid.

Water coming out of a/c vents

I've read tons of threads about water leaking into the floor boards but none seem to help so far. I've only owned the jeep since Monday but twice now I've had water come out of the a/c vents, the ones that aim toward the driver and passenger. It runs out when I take a turn. When it happens its probably about a glass full of water and it's ice cold. Like when it hits my foot it feels like ice water. I've checked both the ac drain and the cowl vent drain and neither were clogged. The previous owner thought it was a cracked heater core but it's just water, no coolant and it comes out cold not warm or hot. Any ideas where this water is coming from and how to fix it? So far it happened after using a/c for a long period of time, not after it rains.
