    I was curious if anyone has experience water in the cabin from the A/c unit running? If so, how did you fix it.

    On the passenger's feet, right? Yes, I have had that problem.

    The drain lines to the air conditioner condenser tray are plugged. I wish I could give you step by step instructions on how to clear them, but alas my steps were: 1) Take it to the dealer, ask them to fix it; 2) pay bill and pick up car.

    Good luck!

    You can drain them yourself. This happened to me on one of my 550s.

    Greg,
    I helped a friend clean the drain line on his ac concenser. We used a thin wire from a mig welder. Just ran it up the drain tube like a mini roto-rooter. A bit of slime came out and that was it. Took about 5 minutes. There is also a foam cleaning product you inject through the drain tube..gets rid of the stale smell ac units can sometimes acquire. Sorry but can't remember the name of it.

    The drain tube comes out under the front of the car near the firewall. If I remember correctly, toward the passanger side.
