If you can safely get access to the drain tube, and don’t mind the possibility of wearing some nasty, smelly water, you can attempt to clear the tube by running a piece of small-diameter plastic tubing up into the drain tube.

The plastic tubing sold at the home centers for de-humidifiers or automatic ice-makers works well.

If you use a piece of reasonably stiff wire, bend a small loop into the end to prevent the wire from piercing the rubber drain tube.

Once you break up the obstruction, copious amounts of water will pour out, and wash the debris along with it.

Most service departments will clear an evaporator drain for around $50.00, provided that the obstruction can be cleared from underneath the vehicle. Rare cases require removal of the evaporator case at considerable expense – these issues are most often attributed to rodent infestation of the HVAC plenum, as they can fill the case with anything from dog food to bird-seed to paper or Kleenex.
