AC dripping on foot
« on: 05 August 2019, 11:03 AM »
Hey everyone I have a 1980 300sd in Cherry condition. Very low miles and everything works perfect. However I noticed when I'm driving around town with the AC on its constantly dripping on my foot. The foot on the accelerator pedal. what could be causing this and how can I resolve it.

Check the drain tubes as a first step. They are these long rubber tubes on either side of the transmission and they end in a "fish mouth" to keep critters out. You will need a lift or jack up the front quite high for proper  inspection and clearing them out with a tool of sorts. Careful not to puncture rubber.
Also a good time to check those pesky sunroof drains  ;)

I've already put a coat hanger up the drain tube and made sure there was no dirt on your bre blocking them. Don't have a sunroof.
