Question AC Drain Clogged???

Hey everyone. So, I experienced something really different today. Discovered my A/C drain could be clogged. After having the A/C for the majority of the day, I saw a little wet spot on the passenger floor. Decided to check it out because I have never seen this on any other cars of mine. Could not find where it was coming from so I called my local Chevy dealership and they informed me it was from a drain for the A/C that could be clogged. My question to you is whether this is something serious or common. The good news is my Cobalt is still under the bumper-bumper warranty so no charge for anything to get fixed.. Got to love those warranties...

If my memory serves me right there were some Cobalts with an incorrectly installed gasket in the AC box...have you asked the dealer to look into this? The drain is on the firewall in the engine compartment -- it is a square plastic tube that comes out straight -- I could never understand why it wasn't angled down to help keep it from holding dirt/dust. From the #2 coil pack look straight back until you hit the firewall then straight down the firewall about half way down is where you'll find the AC drain.

ok so i tried the hanger in the ac drain didn't feel anything or get anything to come out.... looked inside at the AC unit/ firewall... the leak seems to be coming from up against the fire wall... but its also somehow creating a nice big puddle in the middle of my floor mat... WTF!!!
