Default Ac drain location

The ac drain location is behind the console panel on the passenger side. All you need is a Phillips head screw driver. There's only one screw that holds it in. Once you've removed that panel youll see thick insulation foam under a wiring harness, lift the harness & remove the foam. You'll see a bright orange plug & it comes out easy. Anymore questions feel free to ask

+1

Only in my case, I used a borescope and a bit of patience to identify the drain below my blower motor where the leaves and other debris had blocked the hole. If I recall correctly, I used a set of "magic fingers" to get the thing unclogged. There was so much water, it was filling up the entire cavity around the blower motor and ECM box.

Actually there are two drains ... the same type on the driver's side too.

Any more corrections needed, feel free to ask :{)>

Default Audio designed a constricted area in the drain plugs

There is a portion of the two orange a/c drains that were designed to fail. That very small drain tube is far too small to be reliable. Slime can build up in this area and it will easily plug up. Thanks Audi, I am well aware of your stupidity. You do a 'half-a-job' and think you have accomplished something wonderful. Overall, Audi is not a very good choice for the money.
