Well after changing both blower motors and the control unit plus having the Air recharged I thought all was good well I was wrong. Got the dreade book symbol but no issues with unit running but here's the kicker after having the unit on High in the hot weather for about 5 hours water stated coming in from the drivers side towards the end of the drive. Any info would be greatfully appreciated. I had the drain holes cleaned out when I put the motors in and no leaking just started after working all day. Its getting a little frustrating especially when you think you got ir fixed. Hopefully your suggestions will shed a light on this issue.I already checked the pollen filter they have been changed a month ago.thanks again guys!

Are you sure it is water? Make sure its not coolant.

No its clear almost like the lines got so cold it dripped from condensation. Is this possible? But I will be changing O rings since earlier I did see a few drips of anti freeze. But that was in the middle consele not left corner of drivers side where this came in.Any other suggestions?

How much 'water' is leaking out? when the A/C is working there will be a small amount thats why the drain holes are there. You may have a problem with your system and it is frezzing up the evaporater, then melting hence the 'water'

I had this issue a few years back. For me, it was AC condensate that had dripped of the evaporator and was ice cold. It was dripping onto the feet of people in the front left seat (i.e. passenger on RHD). It was leaking out at the join where the duct to the left hand blower, meets the HEVAC box and typically only after going around right hand bends. To stop it, simply use some heavy duty duct tape and seal the join well (only the lower half really needs to be sealed).

Pretty easy fix. The drains to the condensation pan tend to clog frequently. If you have EAS, put the car into High profile; Make sure you open at least one door and the tailgate to freeze the EAS! Crawl underneath around the driver's door and look up around the transmission. There will be two black rubber nipples sticking out of the floor. These are the drains for the a/c pan. Give them a good squeeze and stick your finger up inside to clear away any muck. This should allow the water to drain back onto the ground and not into the car. If they're really really clogged, the only option then is to disassemble the underside of the dash and find where they connect on the inside. You can then blast a bit of compressed air thru the topside to push out any deep seated stuff.
