I'm no mechanic and I'm a noob Jeeper, but it just so happens that I installed an AC kit last month from jeepair.com so I think I can help for once. The drain for your AC comes out of the firewall under your hood on the passenger side under the condensor. You might be able to clean it out from there with some creative tool making. I would think a metal coat hanger with a small hook at the end would do well. If it can't be cleared from the drain, you'll have to get your heater box out which isn't a small task. You can go to jeepair.com and download their very comprehensive installation instructions which contain color pictures and everything you need. Those pictures can help you identify the drain if needed and can also help you get your heater box out so it can be thoroughly cleaned out. Hope that helps.

If you installed a DIY AC on a Jeep I'd hardly call you a noob!
What you said is right - it's a common problem. Search the threads and you'll find that another fix to this problem is to get a small length of tube (about 6 or 8 inches) that you can attach to where the drain tube comes of the firewall. That way the condensation will drip straight down the extra tube and not back around the grommet in the firewall - thus avoiding the condensation flood.

i was wondering if anyone had a problem before with this clogging up with mud and how to clean it.
