AC condenser hose......

Hi.
I am trying to put my car back together and am lost. Where does the rubber hose, coming from the drivers side AC condenser go to (at the bottom)???

if it is small diameter hose with no fitting at the end, that is most likely your condensor drain. just hangs down to drain excess moisture.

No fitting. There is one going in to the passenger side radiator, then one coming from the driver side! I need to know where the one on the drivers side goes.....

Easy bud. You're asking someone to crawl under their car and frankly, I couldn't get under it.

I can tell you my 2014 has a 1/2" dia hardline with a U bend coming off the driver side top of the condenser. The hardline part has a port on top of the U covered by a cap. This is the "High side port". Right under that on that hardline is a pressure switch. This line goes from the compressor to the condenser. It goes under the crank pulley.

About halfway down on the driver side of the condenser is another line. This line transitions to a small diameter, maybe 1/4". It goes to the firewall where it ties to the evaporator.

There are two other lines that transition to hoses, near the center of the bottom of the condenser. These are the trans cooler lines and they go under the engine on the passenger side. \

Possibly going to a online parts seller's site will show a blow up view.

Thanks Spurshot.
I only have 4 outlets/inlets on my condenser. I have the 2 "U shaped" hard lines hooked up on the drivers side. Under those hard lines there is 1 rubber hose hanging. On the passenger side there is a rubber hose coming in from trans?! to the condenser.... I need the one on the driver side, at the very bottom of the condenser (rubber hose)

The two at the bottom are the trans cooler section of the condenser. GM puts the trans cooler as part of the condenser on these cars and also my 2014 truck. You can tell its a trans cooler line by the type of connection to the condenser. The trans cooler lines are push in, with an O ring in the cooler, then a small wire clip slides into some holes and finally a plastic collar slides down the line over the wire clip to retain it.

The AC Freon lines are flanged.

I checked the parts sites. Your condenser is different than mine, because you have hydraulic power steering and that cooler is apparently also part of the condenser. You will have to find someone with a 2010 to help.

Thanks spurshot. Yeah, I have the 2 hard cooler lines with clips running to the front of the radiator. Then, I have 2 rubbers hoses going to the outside, bottom of the condenser.

Those rubber hoses are probably power steering cooler hoses.
