Default i have a little drippy tube

so i came home one day and after half an hour i checked under the car and i saw a puddle. i pooped the hood, and i noticed there was this tube that was dripping, i dont know what that tube is or what it does, i figured someone on here might know what it is. I've posted some pictures below.

That is the drain tube from the evaporator core of the A/C system. Nothing to worry about, it's normal condensation build up. You should be worried if no water leaks out of there when the A/C is on.

+1 to SChema

That aluminum tube on mine actually covers in ice during long drives like crazy, then when parked it melts and drips like crazy, people always think my SC is spewing oil underneath...
