Q: Air conditioner leaking water

asked by on

There is water leaking from the air conditioner on the passenger's side.

Hi there. The air conditioning system will acquire condensation during operation. To prevent the condensation from spilling into the vehicle, there is a drain equipped. While the vehicle is running and the air conditioning system activated, it is normal for water to drain from the vehicle. Have a technician inspect the AC system and validate what the source of the issue is.
