A/C Evaporator Drain Location

Sat Sep 21, 2019 5:09 am

The air conditioning smells a bit musty when I start it and on other cars that's meant that the drain line under the air conditioning evaporator clogged and there's some residual condensation in the box. On every other car I put it on the lift and there's a tube or a drain hole staring me in the face under where the refrigerant lines go into the cabin.

Of course, the FFE isn't every other car, so I can't find the condensation drain. Can anyone tell me where it is?

And yes, I've already changed the cabin filter.

Thanks.

Once you locate it under the car, please let us know. Mine also smells a bit musty and I'd like to see if mine is clogged as well. Thx!

I had the car on a lift and went up and down the floor pan. I'll be damned if I can find the drain opening. Based on the above picture, it should be on the passenger side of the former transmission tunnel, but there's nothing there or anywhere else that I can see.
