AC drain donut seal at firewall

Ive searched and searched through a ton of AC drain threads and can't seem to find what I need.

The AC drain in my 02 WJ is leaking at the point it enters the firewall. The drain itself has been cleaned out and is clear. The water is still coming out when the AC is running.

Has there ever been a writeup done on how to replace the firewall donut seal? I'm not even sure where to get said donut seal.

Any help and especially pictures would be greatly appreciated.

is this what you are looking for: SEAL PANEL - 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee (5012696AA)

i don't think it would be too hard to replace. just pry out the old one and install the new one.

Mine was leaking into the cabin from the condensate draining out and running back up the tube to the firewall and soaking the old gasket. I had solved this problem on Dakota's for a long time, so I knew a fix for it. I grabbed about 8" of
Clear tubing, 5/8" I think, and used it to extend the drain further out and with a down slope so it couldn't run back onto the donut gasket. I had to dip the tubing in boiling water to soften the end so it would fit onto the drain, but once cooled it shrank and formed a seal so tight that no hose clamp is needed. The same might solve your issues as well with no firewall work needed.

Is it the same part for a V8 limited as a 4.0L Laredo?
