A/C evaporation 'sprinkler'

When first purchased a BayStar in 2010, I read about a problem of water from the evaporator in the a/c that would leak on the passenger's feet. I did not have the problem at the time, so did not pay that close attention. Error -- I now have the problem in spades. It almost acts like a sprinkler under pressure. Since I am basically a little lazy, I thought I would resurrect the thread rather than go back and research ways folks found to correct the problem. Any ideas?

Usually a plugged , drain on the bottom of the A/C housing on the outside of the fire wall, dust from the evaporator gets to the bottom of the housing and forms mud and plugs the drain. Can't tell you where the drain is on your unit , sorry. But if your looking closely , it may be dripping very slowly, use caution cleaning, if you stick anything in too far you run the risk of puncturing the evaporator; not a good thing.

If it is the dash HEVAC. it's for sure a plugged drain. If you crawl around under the rig just in front of the firewall you should find the drain tube, it's usually a rubber tube with nothing on the bottom end of it. Just an open tube.

I have seen it on mine, but can not recall the exact location, Seen it on my new-used car and do recall the exact location (Since it was last Wed I saw it) and humid as it was here. THat thing was dripping in the manner of an operating fire hose.

The problem I believe is that the air when driving a highway speeds comes in thru the wide open grill at a high velocity. This "ram Air" enters the evaporator box thru the two intake openings and blows the dehumidified water onto the floor before it has time to drain down the drain. I just added an air filter to the front of my evaporator box opening to slow down the "ram Air" effect. I've not had the problem since.

Welcome to the forum & irv2 Denny.
Denny2w adding a additional filter you may find the water saturating the filter and may create mold, you need to check periodically for that.
The fix by padre44 was followed by other Bay Star owners to correct their problems.
