Ok I know I've seen something on this before, but I can't find it using the mobile app search. I just noticed water dripping steadily for under the passenger side dash. Its coming frrom a black thing.. I think something to do with the AC? It looks like it is coming from where wires plug in.. or flowing down onto them. I had the fan blowing but the AC wasn't on. And it was still dripping when I turned everything off.. even the car. It is raining out and has been all day but it only started dripping within the last hour. Is there a drain plug that could be clogged and causing this? Here is a picture of where it's dripping from.

Yes, clean the drain tube, it is probably full of leafs bugs and all sort of debris. Bottom of firewall about in line with steering rack bolt.

Either blow air up the hole or use pipe cleaners. Carefull you could get a shower. Here is a shot from the bottom...

Funny how many little portals, tubes and passages are hidden on a vehicle...especially in areas where debris and critters can get inside to plug and make problems. Nice having these forums as a source for the quick fix. Stiff pipe cleaners are definitely a nice means for snaking and, if they're too bendy, use a long tie wrap first.

OK so I used pipe cleaners in the drain and at first some water cake out with a little dirt and then nothing. I have the AC on and it isn't dripping now. But is there any way water could get drip from there because of rain? Cause it's not raining now and yesterday the drip was fairly heavy during a heavy rain

Yes, any rain that could get in the heater box should flow out this drain. When I unplugged mine I had what felt like half a liter of water come out. So maybe clean it again a bit later.

Well my pipe cleaners only went a few inches in then it felt like I hit a "wall". I'm guessing the drain tube turns? So how long is the drain tube? Maybe I was hitting debris

Try blowing air into it then.
