Water / Condensation in Footwell heater vents F430

Hi Guys
RHD F 430 F1 COUPE 2005
Can anyone advise the remedy for water coming out of the passenger side footwell heater vent ? Not a huge amount but enough to irritate !
The heater and air con work fine no stale smell etc all seems fine bar the half dozen droplets of water appearing on the carpets.
What is the cure?

Thanks in advance for any answers.

Simon- The odds are good that the vent hose for the air conditioning evaporator is clogged or partially clogged. It is #26 on this drawing from Ricambi's online parts catalog.

You should be able to find it hanging below the evaporator under the car, about where the puddle of water forms when you park the car after it has been driven. Clean that out with a piece of wire with no sharp edges, or compressed air from the top, and you should be good to go.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.

Thanks Terry
I shall have a route round and see if I can locate the Tube
Ideally from the top and try an air line first. I do get the small puddle underside of the car on the Drivers side RHD. I assumed that as my inside leak was passenger side the circuits were separate. I have a good pointer now as to whee re to look
Thank you for your quick reply its much appreciated
Cheers Simon
