Default AC Leak Unknown

Ok so I have a leak behind my glovebox. The other day I took out the hose that leads the outside and I replaced it thinking it would fix it but not at alll....i would love to fix it myself and not send it to a place and get charged up the a** for something that could be simple. So right above where the drain hose connects, right above it there is some foam that looks like a gasket between two plastic parts . That all I can see and if AC is on full blast it will literally pour a steady stream of water. Please tell me what it is if anybody knows!!! Thanks

Define simple, What could be simple for some could be the hardest thing for others. Not sure how technically savvy you are but it sounds like your evaporator coil needs to be replaced with a leak behind the dash.

What year is your car? A/C still blow cold at all? Any other info you can provide?

Totally agree...year and model helps.
Better description is even better!
From your screen name, I will guess you're in Puerto Rico? Thus high humidity and lots of condensation.

Sounds like water/condensation? Hoses won't fix this. If the AC is cold, then you have a drain issue. Common is the blower box drain gets melted from the exhaust so dumps water in the passengers footwell.

But we really have no clue on the issue..........
