Default A/C water leak

Whenever my A/C is on i occasionally (every few minutes) get a little water shot into my passenger side floorboard (just got THIS miata a few days ago) it's obviously got something to do with the A/c's drain system but anywhere in particular i should check before i rip the dash apart?

I remember deplugging the drain on mine when I first got it...but can't remember where the drain is specifically.

If you do a search over on miata dot net, I'm betting you'll find out where it is.

Ditto. Pull up the passenger carpet under the glovebox and you'll see a tube running from the AC unit behind the glovebox towards the center of the car directed towards the transmission. That drain tube is blocked with leaves and stuff.
