    Anyone know where the AC drain tube is located? I can't seem to find it. I know the previous model was on the passenger side. I went under the car and didn't see it. Would it be under the plastic panels?

    Run it for a few minutes with the A/C on full blast.......and then look under the car for water dripping. :)

    I did and I guess it's not humid enough. No water dripping at all. I'm so confused haha

    Sorry for bad instructions.
    It will normally actually extract more water when the fan is on LOW.....and it runs out faster too.
    Try looking immediately after coming home from a drive and turning it OFF.

    I think this is from the previous model I believe which is easy to find. I done the A/C cleaning on the 2014 Prius plug-in which was easy to find. On the Prime, I just can't find it.

    My second attached picture comes from a 2019 Prius.
    Source is here.
    You should find it if you go under the car in the passenger side.

    In this case, you shoul go in the passenger place, inside cabin, take off the rug, and you will see a hose going outside the car trough the deck.
    Here, a video from Corolla, but is almost similar.

    Just curious, Why do you need to find the drain? Knowing almost entire underside, except the exhaust elements, of Prius Prime is covered by plastic, I would think the drain is out of view without removing the cover. Have you removed suspected passenger side cover?

    I have the stinky AC issue where I need to pump some cleaner in there to hopefully cure the problem.
