No Water under car from AC

Ok where the heck is the water that you normally get from running you AC? I mean I have had my car since May in south Alabama and have not seen any yet. I have even opened the bottom foot vents to see if the fan will blow water out of it in case something is clogged and nothing.

Any ideas?

If I remember correctly, there was a couple of people on here who had problems with their drain plug being clogged and had to take it to the dealer to have them get it unclogged. I don't remember the specifics though since it's been awhile but it could be a place to start as if this is the problem it could cause some more serious water damage later.

I'm in Ms. and I get a pretty good puddle under the passenger side firewall. How much do your other cars leave? That should be an indication of what you should see under your Camaro.

I live in Alabama and I have puddles under mine, so much that I took it to the dealer cause I was concerned. They lifted it up and showed me where it was coming from, they even checked every fitting just to make sure and nothing was loose. Boy is this car awesome.

No water under my car either. Just curious, is there a fluttering sound coming from your dash vents other than the normal air flow noise? I hear strange noise at certain fan speeds other than low.

I am taking it to a girls oil change shop I know. She has a IOM 2LT a 94 Z28 and a early 70's Camaro. She lives and breaths Camaro and said she would have her guy take a quick look. My dealer said no bulletin on it so they would not look at it.

Give these a shot and find a new dealer! They cant fix your L99 problem and tell you a bulletin doesnt exist when it obviously does.

I have seen very little water from the AC. I also find it VERY strange, W/ Hot & Humid weather here ! AC is nice and cold though!

Can someone explain exactly where the water should drip from ? Maybe a pinched hose? Or what?
THANKS,

I just heard water slooshing around in my car today it's seems like it is coming from the back, but can not be sure. I will have to run my air also to see if there is water on the ground it should come out by the right front tire.

Thanks, Great Info. I wonder if it is exactly the same with the V6 ?
