Question A/C condensation problem?

Hello again all,

I'd posted an earlier thread regarding the A/C for my used 95 Suzuki, Sidekick. Well, it's still runnin' well!!!

BUT, something I've noticed for since the beginning (i think) is how condensation develops on the inside passenger side of the car. There's a thing-a-ma-jig there which obviously seems to be part of the A/C. That's where the leaking is taking place. This afternoon I went to my car and the rug on that side was totally drenched. (thus I'm off to go buy a rubber mat).

Any ideas as to what this might be? Might it be a quick fix? A broken hose or something?


I feel kinda guilty posting again. What with all that I get out of this forum and the little I put back in. Hmmmm, hopefully one day in the future I'll learn enough to help out as well.

The problem is the drain is plugged up. Just below the glove box where the air box meets the firewall, there should be a rubber hose passing through the firewall. You should be able to see it from under the car also. If you can see it from the out side and you are able to straighten it out enough to run a coathanger through, you should be able to inplug it. Be gentle with the coathanger. You don't want to poke a hole in the evaporater.

Thanks Desi501 for the info.

I took a look and can see the hose I think. But don't feel confident enough to screw around with it.

So I may take it someplace in the morning. Can you surmise how much such a job should run me? $20?, $40, $50 or above?

from what you described, it sounds like something very simple for someone in the know...such as an A/C specialist.

It depends how much time he spends on it but I wouldn't expect more than around half an hour $30-$40.

Thanks bud,

awoke this morning darn' early to beat everyone else to it. Turns out this local spot wakes up a heck of alot earlier and there were already 6 cars ahead of me.

But anyhow, I spoke with him and he said the same exact thing you did and would do the job for about $25. So I'll be back there early again tomorrow morn.
