Customer: replied 7 months ago.
all I want to know is what it is that I need to replace so I can buy the part and take to a mechanics

Ok, what you have going on is a blocked evaporator drain hose, The ac need to be able to drain off condensation, If the tube gets blocked? it backs up and runs onto drivers or passenger side floors,, It s NOt a matter of replacing anything, car is lifted on a lift and hose located and compressed air blown back into it to clear the tube, Very common problem, Very easy fix once at tube and compressed air, Many shops dont even charge for this if good customer or will do during oil change. This link is a picture of what the drain tube looks like, they gets bugs and road debris in them and need cleaned at times
