Default 2007 sx4 A/C not draining condensation

This problem just recently started, run the Air Conditioning and the condensation doesn't drain. Make a hard left turn and the water slides into the blower fan fins creating a whoosh sound.

Anyone have this issue?

I've just had this problem after 2 years of ownership.
We have had 4 straight days of rain, so I thought maybe the cowl was plugged and overflowing into the heater box.
Did you get your problem fixed?

from what i can tell, the cowl is clean. I read on another site the drain tube might be restricted from debris (dirt, leaves) allowing the water not to drain. I am going to try cleaning this out first as it seemed to work for another person.

We have had heavy rain also lately, but after i drained the water june 29, the car sat in the garage, it did not rain june 30 and yesterday after the Ac was used for 30 mins the problem is back.

I don't see a water spot on the ground after the Ac is ran either....i will keep you updated.

I was aslo told the 07 sx4 doesn't have a cabin air filter element, so replacing this may help keep the clogs away. The 08's and up have one....

I just took come compressed air to the drain tube and alot of water immediatly came out of the tube. I continued to blow compressed air up the tube and seeing if any thing else was coming out and nothing did.

i then drove teh car around withthe AC on and took a look under the car to see the water draining as it should. I took some left turns and the shoshing of water is no more.

I will watch this to see if it comes back...

The sx4 does have a cabin air filter, the 07's didn't come with them but the 08's did. The cabin air filter from an 08 will fit an 07. The a/c drains was a culpurit. There is a TSB ( ts 02 04018) on this concern. It says to clear the debris from the drain install a cabin air filter and a filter in the cowl. Contact your dealer about this TSB.

You did good. It's almost always a clogged drain tube. You can use a wire to drain it as well.

Default Where's the drain tube anyway?

Hi guys. I'm having the exact same issue in my SX4 and I'd like to try the compressed air solution but I'm just not sure where to find the end of the draining tube.

Ryan1, where exactly did you blow that stuff? Thanks in advance, this starts to get on my nerves as the floorboard is wet and gets smellier every minute!

if the compressed air doesnt do the trick, a coat hanger will work too aslong as you get it very straight and go very slowly to unclog the drain hose. you dont want to rip it.

Default Still water in there!

Ok, after a more careful inspection, I found the drain hose under the SX4. I slided a semi-hard wire in there (pretty far, mind you), but to no avail.

Tomorrow, I'll give compressed air a chance and if it still doesn't work, Suzuki dealership, here I come!

Thumbs up Blew it all away!

And... yes! The compressed air is what finally solved my problem!

If anyone's interested, I could post a picture of the exact location of the draining hose. You can even reach it without going under the car if your wheel is turned all the way to the left but then again, it wasn't the most comfortable position to slide in the air can.
