#14 of 21 2003 Tacoma with water in ductwork

#15 of 21 2003 Tacoma with water in ductwork
Jun 03, 2009 (5:36 am)
I've tried to get this fixed twice at the dealer and both times - nothing.
I am getting water in my duct work, both when it rains and when I use the AC. And I am not talking about a drip here. If I hang a left I hear water sloshing all behind the console and it drips and soaks into the passenger side rug.
And if i hang a right, at times, no less than a gallon of water will pour onto my feet. Its at the point now where I pull my feet back every time I make a turn. And i am constantly in a small puddle.
Any help? I talked to a guy who used to be a mechanic and he said that I should have a drain in the ducts that is probably blocked.
But I don't know the first thing about where to look and any help would be appreciated.

I have the same problem with my 2008 pre-runner. I thought it was a thermostat problem.

#19 of 21 '08 A/C Noise
Jul 28, 2010 (10:36 pm)
I have an '08 PreRunner SR5, V-6, Extended Cab with 43,000 miles. Recently I have started hearing a barely audible, slight "ding" sound every once in a while and only when the A/C is on. Sometimes I hear it a few times within a minute or two, sometimes only every few minutes. I have also noticed lately that when I stop and park, whether the engine is left running or not, what seems like excessive dripping of water (condensation, I suppose), but that may be normal because it has been very hot lately in Tennessee (over 90 degrees most days) and I run the A/C all the time. Also, it seems the A/C blows colder at some times and a little less cool at other times. Anybody having similar experience and/or any explanations? Thanks.

There is a drain tube that comes out underneath the vehicle (that's the water puddle you see when parked after running the A/C). Look under the vehicle in the area of the heater, A/C unit. Try to open up the tube blockage with a length of wire, etc.
If the blockage is really bad, it may be from leaves, dirt, etc. that have gotten inside the unit and ductwork. That would mean disassembly of the whole unit. It's a big job, but not impossible and it's way better than driving around with your feet in a bath tub.
