Leak

Recommended Posts

hi,

i`m new to the forum, i have noticed a leak behind the passenger side front wheel and was wondering if it could be anything to do with the ac. it`s dripping from the back of the engine compartment but you cannot see it from above with the bonnet up. the car had it`s first service last week and to be honest with all the rain we`ve had recently i hadn`t noticed anything.

It's normal to find quite a puddle underneath from the AC. The evaporator has a drain tube in that area.

We've had nine cars now with air conditioning, and with the exception of a Honda Civic, they all have ejected excess water from the air conditioning system. Mixture of Nissans, Toyotas, and Mazdas.

The Civic didn't seem to do this - and I remember when we had to have the Battery replaced, the garage we used for this, being surprised by the fact that the Civic had a second radiator.

As I work as a car jockey at a large hotel the most asked question in summer is "has my car got a water leak"

Just about every car seems to do it, its condensation from the A/C unit turning into water and draining away.

One day I shall say its not a leak but how about the ecu light flashing, the low Oil indicator doing its bit, and other various warnings flashing away. Then I could mention the brakes pulling, nearly bald tyres and cracked windscreens etc. All on nearly new cars. You would not believe how some cars are neglected.
