AC condensate drain
 
I know this issue was posted a couple of threads back, I have noticed that I have zero condensate drain however floors are dry front and rear on all sides of the interior, does anyone know the location of the condensate tube and where it exits below the vehicle or am I not seeing the water drain due to the underbelly pan or is their a collector box that needs to fill and then drain when it is full ?

The water seems to just drip after a day of AC use. I don't think there is a collection pan. It just drips...

I seem to remember dripping from the middle to right side of the car, like under/just in front of the passengers feet?

try parking it on an incline 30 degrees and run your ac for 5 mins.. if it drains/drip on the floor. i think its ok IMHO. i have some TSB's on the thread x5 35d driver side floor wet...
i hope this helps.

When I replaced the fluid in my transfer case, I seem to recall condensate still dripping in that area. I assume you'll have to remove a small metal plate that protects the area under the transfer case to see the drain.

Tried your suggestion and what do you know, condensate drain, I assume when on a level surface the water just collects on the underbelly pan.
