i ran my a/c on high and my wife said her leg was getting wet from under the dash near the console. the liquid didnot smell like anything outher than water.is it common for the a/c to sweat inside the car.

Mine does the same thing.... Ive ruled out its just the lines cooling and creating water. Its just a little drip. I wrapped it in about 3 inches of heat tape. Problem solved.

There's a small line that exits the Air box just under the evaporator. it may be clogged. You can blow it out from under the car. Look near the heater core lines where they go through the front trunk from under the car you should see it there. IT's about a 3/8" thin hose.

Also the box is multiple pieces. there's a seam near the drip pan so it's likely it's coming from there. You can see the seam from inside the car. Just make sure all of the lower screws are snug.

should not leak into car - I vote for drain hose being closed due to dried "mud"

I agree - check the drain. Item 38, 39, 40 on this diagram from the Service Manual.

i will check the drain, i have not left the house today. it's too hot in my garage too work right now. florida hot and humid, my half balding head is like a sweating machine. i will have to wait for a cool day [75]. i have ordered a belt tensioner and a hurst shifter soo maybee i will open the house door, put the fan in and blow the cold air in from the house. time to change the end on the compressor to the blower to blow the line out. thanks for the help, youall rock.

It's got to be the drain. I have had it plugged by cob webs in the past.
