Where is the drain for the air conditioner evaporator located? I went to pick up my wife at the airport, and on the way home, I made a right turn and a bunch of ice water poured onto my lead, er, right foot. It happened a couple of times, so I guess it is completely clogged.

I think it comes through the firewall, somewhere near the turbo, a small black tube. When I used to work as a service writer at a Ford dealership we had customers with the same complaint and it always turned out to be that the drain was clogged. Try running a wire up through it--Good Luck! mmedic50

I used a 5/16 or 3/8 drill bit and spun it in my fingers as I pushed it up in the tube. That way it pulled stuff out instead of just pushing through.
