Does anyone know where the AC drain hose is routed? Front and back drivers side floor soaked. Unsure
what is the cause.

    Unless the '96 is unusual, AC drain is on the passenger side. Doesn't mean it is NOT a problem with the AC drain, but it would be taking a strange path to get to the driver's side. Can you trace the moisture towards a source?

    I would look elsewhere if the water is behind the driver's seat. Does this car have a sunroof? If so, check for clogged drains in the channel where the sunroof rides--there are usually two, one front, one rear.

    If you have no sunroof, check the trunk for leaks. Water can enter through the trunk seal, the tail light gaskets or a seam under the trunk, and when you brake, the water works its way up into the car.

    ANOTHER source for a leak is a clogged drain in the fresh air vent under your windshield wipers. If that clogs, you have a little fish tank up there, and water will seep through various firewall openings. There again, by accelerating the car, water can work from the front to the back of the car.

    AC drain problems are usually isolated to the very front of the console area, and not a lot of water comes out of the AC evaporator anyway.
