The A/C drain is on the right side of the center hump. You don't have to remove the whole thing. Remove plastic bolt that hold black plastic panel, pull back carpeting. Small dime size diameter plastic tube comes out of A/C box and into rubber hose. Hose can easily get pulled off. You can glue it back on or use small hose clamp. Don't over-tighten or A/C box will crack. It's not the antenna because that would show up on headliner, not at the footwell.

I have noticed that the passenger side footwell gets really wet(soaks rights through the floor mat) on occasion. After talking to mechanic, he said an a/c tube runs through there and could be broken or out of fitting. My question is, how do I go about removing the center console to get a look in there. Some of the plastic pieces seem really fragile. Is there a "best" order to getting in there...specifically the right side that I need. Any help in greatly appreciated.


Are you sure your roof mounted antenna is not leaking??

If your problem only happens after a rain or car wash; I would check that our first. One easy check would be to remove the sensor panel on the headliner and look at the antenna mounting from inside of the car. If it is loose or leaking tighten it up ( Sorry I wasn't able to figure how it was attached) or seal it up with some silicone chaulk. Try to match the color of your car or just use clear.

Hope this helps.

remove the top cover of your roof antenna
just be careful its only held buy 3 little ears
into the antenna base the trick is squiss the cover as you pull up. dont worry if you brake it
its only a $.65cent part remove the antenna by undoing (i) screw
