97 PA New Condenser Problems

Just bought a 97 PA that was dirty and had been sitting for a while. The AC was not working and the AC condenser was replaced last week. Now the passenger fan sometimes makes a high pitched squeal, there is water dripping from under the glove box and when you make a right hand turn it sounds like water is flowing to one side of the car.

Check and see if the drain is clogged under the evaperater core,see if water drips outside under the right front fender.

Re: 97 PA New Condenser Problems

All three things started happening last week:
1. Water coming from under the glove box. I need to see if the drain is plugged. Near the condenser? I'll use a small guage wire to poke it with.

2. When the air is turned on, the blower fan will make a high pitched squeal for about 2-3 minutes, then recover it's breath and squeal intermittently.

3. When we turn on our street, there is a sound like water moving from one side of the car to the other, not just a little water, like maybe a gallon of it. There doesn't seem to be an increase in the water coming from the glove box during the squeal or the right hand turns, so I'm not sure there is a relationship with the water leak or not.

The drain would be at the firewall below the receiver/drier area should be a small 1/2 in. id rubber tubing and it would drip water when the air is on and the outside temp is hot,good luck.
