hello the drain is located on the firewall of the vehicle below the ac and heater core connections as shown in this picture, the drain is a small black outlet coming out of the firewall

The png numbers are meaningless. Which is the drain (also the photo is messy. Can we fix that?
Expert:  HDGENE replied 1 year ago.

It is just a photo of the ac lines and heater hoses going to the firewall, The actual drain is not pictured in it, its directly below the ac lines on the firewall about a foot down.

That is a better picture of the drain, do you need more asssitance?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Its raining and dark. I'll take a further look in the morning. I figured it was there somewhere, but I thought it was closer to the lines at the firewall. I've got to raise the car to look. I'll get back to you ASAP. Thanks

No problem, blow out the drain with air if clogged

It rained solid for two days (Garland, TX). I may be able to get out there this afternoon. Stand by. Thx

no problem

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Found the drain. It actually runs down through the Dash in the center , then through the floor. But, That was not the water problem--it was the back door water drains. Still, you helped me find the A/C drain as I had asked, and you should collect the agreed compensation. Thank you.
