A/C leaking water in the passenger side floor.

I have searched the forums on this subject and all I could find was explanations to where the drain actually was. I have searched in some sections and still am unable to locate the actual drain. Does anybody have a picture that shows what hole in the unibody the drain is in?

Read this post, it has an image and all the directions to follow.

The drain is hidden under the passenger side carpeting, you have to peel it back to access the drain for drilling.

I knew about that fix but didn't want to drill into that piece if I didn't have to. I'd really like to find the hose on the backside of that. Someone said that they was able to locate it in the frame behind that area. I was just wondering about which hole in the frame to look in to maybe be able to spot it.

I'd almost say that your over-thinking it, I saw the post by the guy who has found it, (Can't remember who it was though), but that would turn a 5 minute fix into a potentially hour long one.

That's what I need to see. Time to find my dremel. Thanks for the link.

My '96 Grand Cherokee was a royal pain!!! I first drilled the hole in the center of the round plastic A/C drain housing inside the car and blasted it out with my air compressor. Still had water. Then I sawed the hole, as recommended in another forum, in the fire wall near the front right tire and installed a rubber hose on the end of the short drain tube. Mine had a right angle on it that pointed downward. Still water on the passenger side carpet! Finally!!! the extra step that kept mine dry was I used some putty gunk (for lack of better terms) that is used to seal sections of metal grain bins and fitted that around the space between the fire wall and drain tube. Voila! Now no water on the passenger side floor.

Apparently, there is enough wind flow through the frame member to force the water to soak up into the carpet padding. On mine, I had to seal up the area surrounding the drain tube, because even though the right angle hose made the water drip downward, the air flow through the frame member shot the water back up into the carpet padding. What I found surrounding my drain tube looked like porous foam rubber. No wonder the water accumulated.
