The black duct running vertical next to the inlet and outlet hoses for the heater core. I’m not sure what it is but I just noticed water (possibly coolant) coming out out the bottom of it last night after driving around town but I had my three year old with me and couldn’t crawl around and check what the fluid was. I have a 2013 Chrysler 200 with the 2.4l if that helps. I’m just trying to find out what exactly that part is so I can go from there as far as finding out what’s going on with my car.

Welcome to the forums. That is a water drain tube for the wiper/cowl plenum. Water dripping from this is normal during or after a rainfall.
It is only if the drain gets plugged up with leaves, etc. that water will come into the car through the HVAC fresh air intake. Usually this causes a wet carpet on the passenger side.

Ok that’s good to know and thank you for the quick response. I’ve browsed the forum for a little while now since I’ve owned my 200 that I bought for my wife a little over a year ago and it’s been very useful. Without it I definitely wouldn’t have tracked down my coolant loss to my thermostat housing which wasn’t as complicated of a swap as reading up on it made it sound but my leaking transmission cooler lines will have to settle for just being tightened with clamps until I can find the time and space to take off the whole front clip to replace them.
