Water collecting in the inside of the back air conditioning

Hi guys . Recently I have noticed the condensed water is collecting in the inside of the back air conditioning, i can even hear the water sound when car is moving. One day i took little medical hose and sucked it out - it was like 200ml, then another day 100ml more. Does someone know what to do, looks like the drain line maybe blocked, because i dont see any condensed water under my car after I parked it.

I'd suspect condensation building up in the centre console air ducts.......here's a pic :



Here's how to take the centre console apart :

Here is some photo. Can anyone advice me, where I can find that drain tube tap. If I turn on the car in that condition, will anything short or damage? Can airbags shoot? Thanks.

At the rear edge of a transmission cover, you can see the tubes at left and right sides of a cover.
