A/C Drain Line Location

Today while doing my second oil change I noticed front driveshaft was wet. Upon inspection noticed water dripping from some type of drain located above front driveshaft under drivers area. It drips onto driveshaft, transmission lines, and onto crossmember for trans/transfer case support. Is this the A/C drain? No rain today but A/C was on on it is very humid. If so it is certainly in a bad spot dripping on these items. The water just lays in this crossmember which IMO will just lead to it rusting and rotting quicker.

Year, model, etc?

They are USUALLY over a bit more to the passenger side, but is possible it could be running along something on the way down.

On any even moderately humid day, you should see a pretty good stream under the vehicle right after parking with the A/C on.

Buy a cheap dressing room mirror and shove under there, then illuminate with a light and if you still can't tell, post a picture for the gurus here.

Yup, mine drips on all that stuff too. Not sure if it's any worse than just driving in the rain though.

Re: A/C Drain Line Location

Thanks for the responses. It is a 2014 Durango with 5.7. I can see up there and it is definitely a drain. Yes I am use to seeing it drip on other vehicles from passenger side as well. Only reason I started to look was the wet driveshaft. I first thought a seal may have been leaking. Glad its only the drain, but just surprised that they let it drip right on Transmission lines and driveshaft. I'm hoping its no worse then rain, but it looks like chinese water torture on the trans lines .
