One more thing I forgot to mention. While I was at the dealership, I had the console trimmed on the driver side according to the recall. I now notice a hose on the other side of the console under the carpet going into the floor. It is quite wet in this area. I cannot see where the hose is coming from but believe it is the evaporator hose. Any ideas?

I am currently trying to get the console out so I can remove the part of the console that was trimmed. I have removed the screws and retainers but something is still holding it in. At first, tt appeared that it was the evaporator drain causing the leak, but when it rained last night, it flooded the floor again. When the weather gets better I will try to clear the drain from the bottom, but for now I would like to see where it is coming from and the cause. Any ideas on the console removal would be appreciated.

Also, I will be checking inside the cowl area to see if leaves have stopped it up. Starting to look like that may be a possibility.

It finally stopped raining and I got to check the a/c drain it is working. Next up, cowl removal.

After removing the cowl, I looked about 6 inches under the cowl, on the firewall, what looked like the evaporator pipes or heater core pipes sticking out of the firewall. It appears that there is a torn piece of material or plastic that covers it. I am not able to get my hand in there to do anything but it appears that it would create a leak. And, there is a small amount of mushy dirt around the drain holes that drain into the fender. I'll clean that up and hope for the best.

There was a small amount of silt around both drains. It did not look like it would cause a pileup of water but there was dampness in the air inlet, so I am hoping this is it. It appears the silt was caused by oak tree pollen and leaves that worked its way down toward the 1 1/2" square hole in the fender, that serves as the drain.


Thanks again to everyone for their advice.
