A/C Drip Tray pics

Hi Guys,
Here's a few pics of the A/C drip tray,along with the rubber elbow that attaches on the eng compartment side. I replaced my heater core few weeks ago thought I'd share these of the drip tray.
The infamous "water fall" or "sloshing" sound we here in the hot months while using the A/C. The A/C evaporator drips onto the tray and then is supposed to run out through the tube and elbow.Sometimes the tube can get clogged and that's when we here the water sloshing around in the tray,or over flowing and dripping onto the carpet.

Hope these couple pics help some visualize what is happening.
I used a wooden pointer to show the location in the fire wall that the tray tube passes through.

Jim

That is the stud that one of the nuts(?) that holds the tray up. Or maybe a locator stud.

NNNOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I remember now! Its for the kickplate that goes under there. I think!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.

94 RMSB 170K Sat 5 years, ran for 1 of those then remained untouched for 4. Sat because it was slapped by a deer and the owners didnt want to fix it for whatever reason.
Mods, all the free good ones.
Future? Probably pull engine, reseal it, and run it a lot more. Looking to get 250k out of it. PRAYING for 300k.

The circled stud is for the dash support brace. It bolts to the support on the bottom directly out from the stud, and a nut goes on the stud after the brace is in place.

Yes thanks Fred. My description calling it a trim plate piece wasn't right.The brace is correct.
