The drain passage for the AC Evaporator is plugged. This causes

the box under the dash to build up condensation (water) & flood

the floor. You need to open up the lower dash & clean out the

box & drainhole. If you don't, mold & mildew will grow.

SUBJECT:

HVAC Drain Water Leaks Inside Vehicle And Under Passenger Side

Front Carpet

OVERVIEW:

This bulletin involves installing a HVAC drain hose.

MODELS:

2002 (KJ) Liberty (Domestic Market)

2002 (KJ) Cherokee (International Market)

1997 - **2005** (TJ) Wrangler

NOTE: This bulletin applies to LHD Liberty vehicles built prior

to August 10, 2001

(MDH 0810XX), and to Wrangler vehicles built prior to March 01,

2005 (MDH

0301XX).

SYMPTOM/CONDITION:

The customer may experience a wet front passenger floor or floor

carpet. This condition

may occur due to water (A/C condensate) from the HVAC assembly

drain tube. As A/C

condensate leaves the HVAC drain tube, it may run back along the

outside of the HVAC

drain tube, enter the passenger compartment, and run under the

front floor carpet on the

passenger side. This condition may occur most often while the

vehicle is being driven.

DIAGNOSIS:

Inspect for the source of the water leak. Determine if the

passenger side of the front floor

carpet is wet because of air conditioning condensate from the

HVAC drain tube. Inspect

the HVAC assembly drain tube for the presence of a drain hose.

If a HVAC assembly drain

hose is not present, and the A/C condensate from the drain tube

is the cause of the water

leak, then perform the Repair Procedure.

PARTS REQUIRED:

Qty. Part No. Description

1 55037651AA **Hose, HVAC Drain (KJ)**

1 56000724AB **Hose, HVAC Drain (TJ)**

1 NPN Strap, Tie

REPAIR PROCEDURE:

1. Inspect the HVAC drain tube. Clean out any debris or other

restrictions in the drain.

2. Install a HVAC drain hose onto the HVAC drain tube. Once

assembled to the HVAC

drain tube, make sure the open end of the drain hose is facing

towards the ground.

3. Install a tie strap around the drain hose to secure the hose

to the HVAC drain tube.

NOTE: Inform the customer to regularly inspect the new HVAC

drain hose for debris,

especially when off-road driving is performed JEEP PASSENGER

SIDE LEAKS Beside the Service Bulletin for the clogged A/C drain,

another source of leaks is attributed to the air intake box for the

heater/ac. To access, remove the wiper blades and remove 4 screws

on cover just aft of the hood. Open the hood and slide the hood

seal (on the aft bulkhead) to expose 2 additional screws. Remove

the tray and the intake box will be on the passengers side. Remove

the 3 screws securing the box and remove. Look down into the intake

and you will see water in the box if the foam seal on the cover is

leaking. I applied silicone sealant on the foam gasket and a bead

around base, as well as covering the screw holes. Re-install the

box and secure. Wipe excess silicone to assure a seal around the

box. No mores leaks.
