Usually it drips water on the driveway but nothing. Im trying to find the AC evap drain tube but I don't see it anywhere

one other question. do you have a sunroof? are both front carpets wet or just one?

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
No sunroof and only passenger side. I pulled back all the carpet and I'm running the AC now but no leak

The drain for the A/C is on the passenger side around to firewall area at the lower portion small rubber tube. Do not use air pressure to clean it as this may blow it off the other end. What I use is a piece of weed wacker cable.Works like a rotor-router.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago

Ask Your Own Toyota Question

Ask Your Own Toyota Question

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
What should I expect if it clears? Will water pour out?

If you can wait till tomorrow I can check my shop manuals

Ask Your Own Toyota Question

yea if it is plugged it will rush out

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Do you think the black piece is the actual drain or just where the water is coming out of because it's plugged?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Hot damn! The compressor seems to have worked water came rushing out. Let me fire it up and see if it leaks

Title

:

HVAC Evaporator Drain Hose Clogged Due to

Insect Intrusion

Models:

All Applicable Models

Condition:

Some vehicles in particular geographic areas may exhibit a condition where the HVAC Evaporator

Drain Hose has become obstructed with an insect nest. We recommend the use of Wilson Spider Ban

or an equivalent insect control and repellant product.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question

yea! now see the tip I sent as this is usually what clogs those drains , now you have to dry things out and teat for mold and mildew.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Any tips for the carpet?

If you have a shop vac that will be a good start to suck up most of the wet , then let sit in sun with doors and windows open.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question

after dried out sprinkle some dry carpet cleaner on the rugs and let sit for half day then vacuum again, that should get things smelly nice .

Ask Your Own Toyota Question

also you can run A/C with all windows and doors closed , put vent on fresh or outside air and spray some A/c treatment into the cowling vents for about 10-15 seconds and let sit for about 15 min before opening. this will kill the bacteria

Ask Your Own Toyota Question

You can get vehicle A/c TREATMENT AT MOST AUTOMOTIVE SUPPLY SHOPS.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question

Is there anything further I can do for you?
