As a new owner of a '90 air-conditioned Graduate, I continue to discover new things about my car every day. Admittedly I am a neophyte as far are auto mechanics are concerned by the standards shown on this forum but I am willing to learn. The car is in good condition but in the course of locating the source of a small amount of water on the floor of the passenger's side, I learned a great deal about cowl drains and other possibilities. One of my advisors suggested that it might be condensation formed when the a/c is used. In checking that possibility out, I poked around and the attached shows what I found. The Cooler unit (identified from my CarDisk) might or might not be leaking but the greater question is:"Is this unit supposed to be factory-sealed in order to work and/or is the duct tape sufficient to keep this unit performing. Of course I know that much of the A/C system is under pressure and should not be tampered with by an amataeur but what about this Cooler unit. I will certainly appreciate any comments.
