The problem may be the drainage 'duct' having a sharp bend

Over in the E60 "stinky A/C" thread, it is said that the real problem isn't the lack of drainage of the evaporator collection pan but a too-sharp "duct" which collects water inside of it.

Does anyone know if an evaporator collection pan even exists?
(I can't find it in the realoem diagrams).

Can anyone confirm the real design problem lies in the "duct" shape?

If it's the duct curvature, which duct do we think is the problem duct?
