Gday, my sister complained about her el gli 6cly dripping cold water onto her feet during cornerning, so i took it for a spin, and when i did a massive powerslide, a bucket load of freezing cold water drenched my feet. Im not sure where it came from.

What is most likely wrong with my sisters car? I checked the coolant and it was full.

Thanks for your advice.

The Airconditioning drain is blocked so the water (condensation from the evaporator in the ac/heater box) is runnung out into the cabin via the foot vents. SOLUTION CAREFULLY!! unblock the drain 8-) :lol:

You may have some difficulty finding the outlet on the EL
On my EL it was where it is supposed to be but was hidden over by the sound deadening material
I had to make a hole in this to get to the drain.
Use something soft like a cable tie or similar but longer to unblock the drain pipe.
