Not sure if this is meant 2 b here or not.
When ever I use my air-con a heap of
water dumps onto my feet from the vent
box behind the console after about 10
minutes. Could this b caused by a drain
blocked? I've never had a problem like this
With my 2 previous falcons. Any help will
b much appreciated.

Thanks. Next question is where exactly do I find the drain?

The drain is in the engine bay, on the passenger side of the firewall. It clogs and will need to be poked with a stick or screwdriver. Should sort it.. Look for an angled protusion from the firewall, about the size of a pen.

Thanks guys. Couldn't see or feel it from the top.
I'll get under the car as soon as I can get the jack
outta the boot as the screw in pin has locked up
& it can't find my real big multi grips.

Finally found the drain after cutting back some insulation.
Ramed an old steel wiper insert into it and out came heaps
of crap and water. Hopefully now my shoes won't full up
with water when I use the air-con. Thanks for the help guys.
