HHR air conditioning problems

Does anyone know how to unclog an A/C condenser? For some reason when I turn on the air everytime i take a left turn water leaks down onto the passenger side making it unbearable to sit there. Im guessing my car is not flowing the water outside like its supposed to and instead is wreaking havoc inside the car.

More than likely you have a blocked drain tube on the evaporator, when that plugs up, you'll get water in the cabin. Here's a thread showing its location, you can take a bit of stiff wire with a hook bent on the end and carefully(really carefully!)fish around up there to clear any debris, insects love to build nests in the tube. Give this short thread a look, pics of the tube location included.....

Another thing is to remove the cabin air filter to check for leaves and debris clogging things up from the inside.

X2. Welcome to the site.
Fwiw. The AC evaporator is located under the dash. The condenser is in front of the radiator.
Sounds like the drain is plugged as 843de has stated. Also once you clear the drain, you should also replace the cabin air filter. The filter may be water soaked from the water backing up in the evaporator box.

X3 on the welcoming of Zorrila14. I hope the information that 843de and firemangeorge will help you get this resolved.
