Default Water draining into passenger floorboard

I noticed just the other day that I water pouring into my passenger side floorboard from underneath the dashboard. There's a black cylindrical shaped thing with two wires (black and red) going around it and the water is coming from a small hole on the bottom, just to the side of the middle on the bottom. A little bit of water is leaking out from above this cylindrical thing, but the majority of it is coming through that hole. I've read that it could be a clogged a/c drainage hose, but I could not find anything resembling a drainage hose under my car. I checked the cabin air filter, thinking that it was clogged, but found that my car came without one. I put a brand new cabin air filter in this morning. In the 10 miles I drove, the bucket I put underneath the leak collected about 3 cups of water. I've attached a picture of the area that is leaking. You can see thick condensation on the far left in the background.

Can someone please help me figure out what this is and why it is leaking water? (yes, it is water. A bit dirty, but I'm positive it's water.) I drive a 2007 PT Cruiser, Pacific Coast Hwy Edition with just over 57000 miles on it. I bought it with less than 200 on it brand-new from the dealership in 2007.

Leaking Water NOT Antifreeze?

Yes, I am positive that it is water. It's clear with some dirt in it and does not have a strong smell.

Check your AC Drain to make sure it is not pluged. It hangs down and usually drips on the sub frame which in it self is a bad design.
Turn the AC on and condensate should drip from the drain after running it for a while

You have your air conditioning on, right?
There's a drain that is clogged - sorry, I can't direct you to it, but it's there on passenger side.

It took a little bit of digging (and waiting for my engine to cool off enough) but I found the drainage hose and yes, it was quite clogged. A LOT of water came pouring out of it when I was able to clear the blockage, which only took squeezing the hose a little bit.

Thanks for all of your help!!!

Old post but can you elaborate more on where found the AC Drain? I'm having this exact same issue.
