Default Need help on my 97 mx5

I just found out I'm getting water in my car and its from running the AC, the tray is getting full of water and when I go up a step hill it drains on the floor. So does anyone know how and where I can get to the drain tube to unplug it or repair it I'll be working on it later today so any information will be a lot of help thanks
Tony

The AC is located behind the glove box on the passenger Side closet to the transmission tunnel. There is a drain the runs into the the trans tunnel up real close to the firewall.

ok I got new problem but fix it, now Im just wonder why and how it happen. My engine blew out the spark plug so I had to retap it and put a helix coil in it, now engine is working again. My question is why and how did this happen and want can I do to prevent this from happening again? I heard this is a common problem with this engine.

I never heard of this happening in a Miata. It comes from not having the plugs torqued down properly. Over-torquing can strip it out too.

this is a very vague question can you clarify what you want to know? if its just what is every light turn in the instrument cluster, air bag, abs(if equipped), seat belt, check engine, charge, e brake, headlight motor activity, and im forgetting one i think its either coolant low, or washer fluid low.
