Default A/C condensate drain procedure

Drove the CRV around this weekend for the first time in couple of weeks when I noticed the AC vent fan stalling when making left turns. Turns out condensate is collecting in the ventilation plenum and sloshing around. I took out the fan and put a bucket in the passenger well only to get water all over the mats after a couple of hard left turns. Obviously not the best solution.

Anyone have experience locating the drain line and clearing it out?[/i]

If it's a Gen 1, unplug the fan motor, remove three screws, fan falls out on floor. Mop up inside with something that kills ALGAE, then use flashlight and mirror to see what's blocking the drain. You could back-probe it from underneath, but it would still plug right away.

Change the cabin filter to improve airflow too.

Thanks, it's a Gen 2, but I assume the procedure is the same.
