Good evening and welcome to JustAnswer!!My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.
Is the evaporator box itself condensating on your floorboard or do you have water in the floorboard?
hello my name is Eric
A/C evaporator drain is plugged. How to clear it.
Average Reported Mileage:116000
Tests/Procedures:1. The drain is similar to the early model Grand Cherokees. Roll the carpet back near the blower motor. There is a round molded part that is part of the evaporator case. Drill a 1/4" hole in the center of this. The drain passage goes straight forward through the firewall.2. Use a twisted pair of mechanic's wire to run through this passage and use compressed air to clear this out.3. Plug the hole that was drilled in step 1.
you have blown compressed air
have you found the drain itself? blow compressed air thru there
I realize that but can you see the drain? are you a harry home owner or a mechanic...I know these can be frustrating...my thought is that maybe the tsb doesn't apply to this vehicle and if you find the actual drain and blow it out it may work....can you give me a link to your tsb that you had alldata doesn't mention it...I remember running across this but its been a number of years do you have vin number
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_OWSoWf2z8 look at this video
maybe a larger drill bit like 2inches lol
there may be dbris stuck in there still
I would try and using a slightly larger drill bit use pliers or a screwdriver and poke around in there and see if you can see any debris...I ran into this a few years ago and got the plug from the dealer
I was able to clear mine out...the problem when I look this up in alldata Mitchell and identifix no mention of this except idnetifix but doesn't mention your model...maybe I'm tired look ath video and let me know iwill do research when I wake tomorrow morning or this morning
cant get a decent picture even with all the big gun info I have...some of these had no drain hose per say do you see one on firewall.....so you turn ac on water accumulates inside passenger floorboard...? cn u see where its coming from around the plug?
you drilled round part
this repair may have been done...peel back the silicone and pull plug back and see if you can see anything behind
yes and what we read and what is can be different I read same thing....
I'm going to put in 99 to 2003 and see if I can get the actual tech serv bulletin tsb
so what is going on??
If you don't turn on ac...then where is water coming from?
where is the water leak? maybe you have a leak elsewhere...cause if you don't use ac its gotta be coming from elsewhere...agreed?
NO THIS IS A STRANGE BIRD NO HOSE....I CALL IT THE EUNUCH EVAPORATOR
plz do rate me as tthat is how I'm compensated thanks for using just answer
still not draining? take a pic and see if you can dislodge and debris.....the problem is this is the method the manuf has provided...drill a hole scrape inside and wave your wand.....maybe loosen up the case a bit and blow in there if too much debris you may have to take it apart and get it out that way or you can get a small hole saw and then repair it after picking and nlowing....yah messed up design for sure...Ive always had success in the times I have done that
good question let me do some research
Ievaporatorts called round thing lol....don't think its gotta name part of evaporator lol
