Default A rubber hose by DP....

Hey

The rubber hose that runs down the DP< what is it for. FOr some freaking reason it came of the little clamp that holds to the firewal and it started to melt. I smelled it in my car and I just janked it out. I ordered a new one, so I am waiting for it to come in.

am I ok Without it for now?

Thanks
Rich

The condenser is roughly between your firewall and glovebox...about where that rubber hose disappears into firewall

If it's not melted all the way back to the firewall, you can probably live with it...all it's doing is letting the condensate from A/C operation drip free, instead of running down your firewall.

If you have an aftermarket downpipe you can move the clamp that holds the hose one hole further away from the downpipe which will keep the hose even further away. It might crinkle it a little, but no big deal.

If you cut or removed the hose so it no longer extends past the firewall outside the car, it wouldn't be a good idea to run your AC until you replace it. Otherwise you will have water from the evaporator core leaking into the car and getting the passenger side carpet wet.

I had that thing resting on my dp for a long time, ended up burning a hole in it. Is it just a hose you can take out and then put a new one in, nothing holding it in on the other side of the firewall? I might just cut it right above the dp, couldn't be anyworse then when it rains and gets the dp wet.

It's attached to the bottom of the HVAC box inside the car. You can see and access it if you look under there on the passenger side.

As mentioned above, you'd be better off just moving the plastic hose bracket one hole over from the one it's in and you won't have any problems with the dp melting the hose.

I think the hole for the hose sits just above the carpet.

Removing the kick plate that covers the ECU will help getting to the hose.
