    Looks like the hose directly from the condenser may have a kink in it. I used a 90 degree elbow to connect my drain hose to get around that. Hard to tell really if your hose is kinked or not from the angle of the shot, but I think I see a slight kink. :notsure:

    Did this mod yesterday. Used a 1/2 90 degree PEX connector and 1/2 ID heater hose from ACE. Took the simple and direct route. I will have to reinforce / zip tie the hose as it exits the splash shield. BTW the NAPA Balkamp push rivets fit perfectly in the holes for the splash shield (and for the radiator shield,I used these on my 2nd gen), are reusable and are more snug in the holes. The ones on the splash shield snapped upon removal - perhaps due to my impatience.IMG_2750[1].jpg IMG_2751[1].jpg IMG_2754[1].jpg

    Thanks for this tip. Just completed. Less than 500 miles and already sprayed with rust proofing but cheap and easy PM. 20220710_171957.jpg

    TSB has the part number too if you wanted to retro fit it yourself: https://parts.toyota.com/p/69357656/87265-33010.html

    And following the TSB, Taco's should be repair procedure B which should be plug and play, no cutting or anything.

    I just did this mod as well on my 22 Tacoma. I've only had it for a couple of weeks, but thought its very cheap insurance, and it gave me a chance to get to know my truck a little better. Now off to NAPA to get those replacement clips that @jneutron was nice enough to upload a photo of. $7.50 for a package, whatever number that is. Thanks to all !
