#19 of 21 '08 A/C Noise
Jul 28, 2010 (11:36 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.
