Thanks Bob. I can be specific with the mechanics now. Can't unblock myself as I am hopeless with engines and technical stuff. Can I?

yes, judith...you may want to look under the carpeting for the drain port~....just a guess....where else can it be...perhaps in the clamshell of the evaporator...where the tube is~....you know I'm going to have to research this myself to find the cartoons to steer you right~..working....working....


you are going to need a professional....there are quite a few parts to disassemble~...perhaps you're rather adept with some tools...in that case follow this~ https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/1st- gen-a-c-system-replacement-how-to-seized-compressor.293204/


the evaporator tube drain sometimes is blocked by a spider, dust. etc~
