This is a TSB from GM it seems kinda odd but it may help

  1. Obtain a fixed antenna mast (new or used).
  2. Measure from the tip of the antenna a distance of 121 mm (4.75 in) and make a paint line or tape line completely around the antenna mast. This will be the depth stop reference. This antenna tool is to be reused.
    2001 Aztek and 2002 Rendezvous Vehicles Only:
  1. Place the vehicle in the service stall over a hoist.
  2. Open the hood.
  3. With a light (a flashlight works best), look over the top of the engine between the back of the generator and the power brake vacuum hose attachment to the intake plenum. Look down to the base of the cowl to locate the evaporator case drain outlet.
  4. Insert the antenna mast tool described above into the evaporator case drain to the depth stop reference line on the antenna mast. Some force may be required the last 6.35 mm (.25 in) as you break away the flashing on the inside of the HVAC case covering the drain tube.

Does the Toyota Camry's air conditioner condensation not drain properly?

The A/C drain hose is clogged, allowing the A/C Evaporator case to fill with water from condensation. This water then drips inside your car on the passenger floor. Somewhere just below the Suction and Liquid Lines you will see a small black hose coming through the firewall and pointing down. This is the A/C drain hose. Take a piece of wire and clear it allowing the water to drain out.

Blow compressed air into drain tube or use a coat hanger to clear out tube. Usually leaves, debris, and the occasional spider nest will clog the hole and cause the condensation to collect and then drain onto the passenger floor inside the vehicle. After clearing run the vehicle and turn on a/c on high and on recirc. Watch for condensation to now leak out of the drain tube and onto the ground.

Can an Air conditioning system leak into the car?

Because there is a transfer of heat through the evaporator coils inside the conditioned air box inside the vehicle, there is a tendency to create condensation on the coils. This condensation is usually channeled off to the out side of the car via a drain path or hose. If the drain path is blocked, the moisture could build up inside the conditioned air box and leak. Also if a drain hose has been disconnected, this could also lead to a leak inside the vehicle. BTW, I have also seen interior fluid (radiator) leaks from the heater coil due to failed coil assy.
