Alfa 147

Cry Like A Baby Another 147 blocked aircon drain -

A damp passenger footwell seems to be a recurring issue with 147s.

My lovely wife has a lovely 2003/53 147 JTD Lusso and I have tracked down the problem to be aircon connected so it seems most probably to be the blocked aircon drain pipe scenario.

I can't find anywhere that tells me where the drain outlet/pipe is located or how to get to it, other than a reference to removing the glovebox. I have spoken to a local dealer who is aware of this problem and says it shouldn't take more than an hour so but can't (won't?) tell me how to go about it. It can't be too difficult - can it?

It seems that I need to fit a replecement hose but is there anybody out there who can tell me how I go about this. Is it obvious if I remove the glovebox? Do I have to get under the car?

My wife is nagging me to take it to the dealer but I don't want to admit defeat. If only Haynes did a manual !!

Please, please can someone help me?
