    Yes! It’s a large grommet that fits in the trans tunnel, without it you will rust out the floors even quicker. And you will need to remove the blower unit again to gain access.

    I installed a slightly smaller diameter tube into the drain hole of the evap unit from below, sealing it in tightly with an adhesive. The tube hangs down below the body by a 1/4" or so, all condensate drains out and never gets near the metal.

    Tom,

    I just did this same process on mine. Here is what the grommet looks like.

    No, there is no tube from the factory, this was an idea that came from the deep recesses of my rapidly aging brain. It prevents any water from spilling into the cabin on turns, stops etc. The factory setup did not always work, as seen by some rusty floors and wet carpet and insulation in that area.

    The bottom of your casing has a small protrusion that fits into the rubber funnel in the tunnel. Funnel in the tunnel, haha.

    So I am clearly missing this piece, W/N has a part (64511352205) but looks like foam that wouldn't seal. Has anyone sourced something that works? @Ajay

    Tom,
    The bottom of the rubber grommet has a 1 to 1.5" "finger tube" that goes thru (in my car) a rubber grommet Into the tranny tunnel. Looks like a rubber funnel..

    Wish I snapped a pic before the install...

    I avoided the AC box this weekend, decided to refresh the cooling system. The flip forward hood looks cool, until you work on the front of the engine. Despite the sore back, new water pump hoses and tstat are in. IMG_20190510_192121853.jpg
