Default water shoring out blower motor

I know this isnt for a Bonneville but I had just helped a friend replace his blower motor in his 98 Riviera because it is a similar setup to my 00 SSEi. My question is that last summer if he had the AC on after a while, realy cold water would drain out of the blower onto my toes on the passenger side floor when we would take a fast corner. After a while it shorted out and we had just gotten around to replace the blower motor. Do any of you know if there is soposed to be a drain that drains the water else where that may be plugged or is there something wrong that would cause the water to build up. thanks.

There is a drain hose thats connected to the motor, check that for blockage

x 2. The hose runs from the motor to the firewall.

I remember the hose but it ran upwards, is the motor soposed to blow the water up or that just a dumb design

Take a look under the car in the heaterbox area. You should see a drain tube sticking down. It'* plugged.
