Default Location of A/C drain tube?

I have a 2006 Mazda 6, I'm a n00b, and I need the assistance of you helpful gentlemen.

I have the moldy smell coming from my A/C vents, and I need to locate the A/C drain tube on the bottom of the car to spray some Klima-Cleaner into the evaporator box. I haven't actually gone down there and looked for it yet, but I want to make sure I get this right.

It's obviously on the passenger's side, but are there any pics/descriptions/tutorials of what to look for? Also, for the record, I have already tried replacing the cabin air filter and spraying Lysol into the intake.

they sell mold cleaner for the A/C at the auto parts store. you spray it in the induction ports by the windshield and it cleans all that crap out.

I don't think the drain tube should have any effect on what comes out the vents as it is removed from the system, but I'm not an A/C expert.

I already have some cleaner called Klima Cleaner. They recommend spraying it down the center vents, which I can't do, since the cord they include just gets stuck and winds up behind the plastic piece, never reaching the evaporator core.

The other recommended (and best) way to use the product is to spray it up the A/C drain tube. Which I am still in need of help with finding. Anyone??

Default Location AC evaporator drain hole

Hi
Had a problem finding this myself. Its on the passenger side firewall well down and difficult to see as it is partly obscured by a metal bracket. It is a short plastic spout about 15mm dia and it only protrudes a small way from the bulkhead. I would include a picture but it is too difficult to photograph. On RHD vehicles look down behind the battery.

Default position of drain tube

Can anyone help me

Is this the AC drain tube?

I have had both my front and rear well full of water, I think over time its been filling up/

Can anyone confirm this is the drain plug I should try and unblock? how far should i poke in? it is wise to jet some air in there?

If its not can anyone put a photo up of what I am looking for. this plug is on passenger side,

Cheers
