    Re: OWNER - nocfn

    So the C126 gave me an eventful few days. We had a 5" deluge over 24 hours here in Houston the other day, and was very happy that I resealed the windscreen earlier this year. So the day after, parking the car outside during the rain, I found some wet backseat carpet on the low spot: where the seat bolts to the floor. After extracting the water with the shop vac (not standing water, just wet) I began to investigate. Front drains in cowl CLEAN. Hole in the A Pillar None found. Poured 4 gallons of water - no leaks. A very good sign as I work diligently to mitigate these areas.

    So I removed the front DS carpet and the foam rubber is very heavy so I knew exactly what it was. I turned the ACC on and turned the heater to full heat. As the AC came on, squeezing the water from the air, it drained right out of my new evaporator onto the floor pan. Removed the vertical carpet on the left side and the culprit was confirmed. The hose popped off its nipple for the drain to the transmission tunnel. So I reattached the hose to the drain box and used a zip-tie to keep the hose firmly attached. It must have been disturbed during my rebuild and I must have not secured it properly. Either way, the heat of the summer took care of any fluid but recent highs in the 62-70F range and ACC running gave me the moisture. So I cleaned the old asbestos fire and sound deadening materials, treated the floorpan with rust relief paint as a precaution, and laid a layer of dynamat in the floor pan. Testing the AC after all was put back together provided a steady release of condensation out both sides of the tunnel drains to the ground below. Good for my annual safety inspection on Friday by the state. I also had a chance to clean my dead foot pedal, and repaint it to refresh and match the rest of the car.
