i have a 1997 jeep grand cherokee I am getting water on my passeger side floor board it’s wter because I can’t smell anti freeze when I don’t use my air conditioner it stays dry. can you help me ?

The water is overflow from your air conditioner’s condensate coming from the evaporator. Unfortunately the JGC has a rather poor design for the drain. It is difficult if not impossible to see the downhill end of the drain because it drains into the frame rail. Go figure. I got some relief for one my wife used to drive by taking it loose at the top and running a wire down thru it.

Warning: Using a wire can damage the hose making things worse. String trimmer wire is a lot safer. Compressed air is also often used, but don’t use too much pressure or you could cause problems.

In either case I suspect the MG is correct about the problem.

I like that suggestion Joe. I had not thought of that. Of course it’s plastic, not wire.

It even has a picture. This is how I fixed it. It took me a bit to find the post on this Jeep forum.
