Excessive AC Condensate

Hi

2010 Cooper S with 19k. on the clock.

I'm aware that using the air-con produces condensate which can be seen dripping on the driveway but I've recently noticed that there is now quite a big patch on the driveway which seems excessive.

Is this usual or should it just be the odd drop. And if it is just condensate is it usual for it to be oily, as in it staining the brick paver drive?

Thanks for any comments.

Hi ya

The amount of condensation will depend on what the weather is like, more humid or wet weather it will produce more.
It is also advised that you also use the a/c in the winter some times, as it removes moister from with in the car, this also helps it from steaming up.

It's only water taste it if it's sweet it's coolant, no taste it's water.

If it's very oily it could be oil you need to check your brake fluid, engine oil levels and around your gear box for leaks.
It is possible for you washer screen reservoir to be leaking to

Hope this helps

And if it gets you drunk, it's neither coolant nor water, eh?

Thanks for the replies.

I don't think it is oil, though I will check, as it is practically colourless.

If it is condensate and therefore basically water, I'm still wondering why it doesn't just evaporate off the drive and leave no residue?

Thanks, Chris
