Should i be concerned about this water leak

I noticed that whenever i have the ac on, water leaks from under the car right under where the EVAP canister sits. Today, after a long drive, i decided to trace where this leak was coming from. So i removed the evap canister and there i found the source of the leak. If you could look at the pictures i have attached in this thread, thats the hose thats not connected to anything; its just pointed down coming out of the firewall and leaking water (not coolant). Any other luder out there have this? Im beginning to think maybe its just a water wastegate.

That's simply condensation from your AC system, every car does that

Re: Should i be concerned about this water leak

Hello all. Im new here, so sorry if Im posting this where I shouldnt. My 5th gen lude has been wetting the passenger's floormat for a while now. Recently I took the glovebox out to check around the evap. I noticed that there is no condensation or water leaking around the evap, but there IS right underneath the passenger's air vent (on its plastic casing), so water accumulates there and eventually drips on the glovebox and somehow finds its way onto the mat.

I have checked the drain plug and it IS draining some water constantly, not sure what amount should be "normal", but it is definitely draining some. I have also tried unclogging it with a coathanger just in case, but nothing happened. My question is, what causes the air vent to condensate so much, being so far away from the evaporator. How normal is this?

Re: Should i be concerned about this water leak

True, would be good to mention that prior to checking inside the AC stuff, I ran plenty of water both on top and underneath the car, pressurized, to rule out a possible seam leakage issue or related. It was all good there, so it's definitely condensation.
