How to clean ac drain line?

Post by paniya88 » Wed Jun 28, 2017 4:54 pm

My car is leaking water in to both front footwells and it should be from the ac drain lines because this happens even on sunny days. Do I have to remove the dashboard to clean it? Thanks in advance

Hi, no need to remove the dashboard.

Undo the little torx screw which is located near the rear end of the centre console. drivers side.
Remove the ashtray ( just lifts up, maybe do the gaiter first )
Undo the torx on the inside of the console, drivers side near the gearstick.
Remove drivers side console side cover
Remove the ducting, the aircon drain is behind it - lift it away from the floor to clean it out.
