    Nice! Looks like a zip tie repair will be my choice if I run into this issue, good to know its easy to get to and flush out the drain.

    i would suggest add something before it happens. it only took one day to drain but its almost a week and ive wet vacumed and faned. its still wet! i might actually make a warranty claim and make them replace me entire carpet due to mildew.

The hose doesn't make a very tight connection so I am assuming that one of our large-footed teenagers knocked it loose (who knows how but I have stopped being surprised).

    Some did end up dripping behind the floor mat so the carpet is wet -- so I have a portable fan going on it this afternoon.
    I had the same problem...passenger side floor was wet, even the back seat floor had an inch or so of standing water. I thought maybe a water bottle had broken, but this was way too much water. I remembered this post from a few years ago, found the post again and fixed the problem. Hose was completely off. I wonder for how long as I don't use the A/C very often. Thanks so much for this post as I would have never thought of this!

    think those of us that put weathertech in found this out first. just add a clamp and the issue is null. dry it very well i still have a moldy smell from getting flooded on a mini vacation

    I just checked, and my 2017 has a factory-installed hose clamp.

    This is good news so they must have realized there was an issue
