Default 96 Oldsmobile Achieva AC drain problem

I just bought the car today and when my step dad aka my mechanic turned on the AC to see how it works it started to drain water in my car on both sides of the front seats but now it is mainly on the driver side. My step dad said it was something to due with the AC but he didn't know how to fix it. So I was looking around online and found that it could be the drain area for the AC may be clogged up so if it is where would it be located on the car and how can I unclog it. Also the water didn't so up until the AC was turned on because when I took the car for a test drive both side of the floorboards were dry. Thanks.

The drain is usually located on the engine firewall. If you can put it up on ramps it makes it easier to access. Just a little tubing thats about 2 inches long.

would you have any idea of what side it may be on or will it be in the middle of the firewall. Thanks.

More than likely the passenger side where the A/C hoses and Heater hoses go. Just look down from that area.

Thanks. I may be putting another topic soon. I think my turn signal, cruise etc switch is bad. I can't get my light to shut off. They only shut off when I turn off the car. What I mean by lights is the the car has everything on like the headlights, Brake lights etc.
