Well I posted recently regarding my 2000 ZTS losing its 134a refrigerant. I do have a leak at the condenser connection from the compressor. That’s a story in itself as I cannot make it quit leaking. I’ve been reading many forum posts regarding A/C systems losing the 134a. So many that I can’t remember where I’ve read what, but someone mentioned looking at the condensate drain hole under the car for evidence of dye. Well I got under the car today and found what I believe is the drain. It’s a little black stub coming out of the passenger compartment, behind and above the assembly that’s attached to the front control arms. On it my UV light shows the dye traces that I didn’t want to see.

Would anyone agree that this is the proverbial smoking gun, all but confirming, that the evaporator is leaking??
