93 toyota canry tube

Hello All
I have a 93 Toyota Camry xle, v6. The question is that there is a tube that comes out underneath the car, just behind the front axle. Looks to me like water is dripping out of it. But I can't figure out what it is for.

Thanks

Does it only drip when you've been using the air conditioner?

Has to be your a/c condensate drain as marksr alludes to.

Had a similar problem with 1988 camry, only the water was filling the trunk. Finally found a rubber tube which was leaking a great deal of water from an unknown source into the spare wheen well.
Also located a hole in the bottom of the trunk which I assumed should have accommodated the tube. Pushed the tube through the hole, bound it with duct tape to keep it there and have not experienced a problem since.

Am still puzzled as to the source of the water.

It's either a regular (rain) drain or a/c condensation drain

Yes Sir! It does have a sunroof, but I am unable to determine where the rubber tube originates.

Might be the sunroof channel drain; not sure how it would be routed in your particular make/model, but not out of the realm of possibilty it could be routed through the trunk area you describe. Try running some water over the sunroof (closed tight!) and see if water doesn't trickle out the tube.

You are right on Tow Guy!
Threw a bucket of water over the sun roof, five minutes later a pool of water formed in the driveway under the trunk.
It was seeping through the tube I redirected through the bottom of the car.
Incidentally, the vehicle is a 1988 Toyota Camry LE 6 cyl.
Original paint, 243,000 km, still burns no oil between oil changes, no rust and in close to showroom condition. Wouldn't trade it for a 2008 model.

FWIW, I think the most recent Camry design is butt-ugly. Wife's previous Camry (now has an '01) was still running strong at 175,000 miles and also used no oil.
