Hey guys,

Was coming home from work the other day, and was heading off the highway on an offramp, and it was pretty much a full circle turn, it was a left hand turn, so the weight of the car was being pushed to the right. Doing about 80 km/h and I felt cold water trickling on my foot where the foot rest is on an auto.

I'm guessing something to do with the aircon. So anyone have the same experience? Or know what is is, just a bit concerning with electricals and water.

Was nice and cold on my foot though which felt nice.

Cheers
Josh

most possibly could be man, i know for a fact that ba had a recall for this thing,

air cond condensation buildup but in the passenger side,
does it only happen with the aircon on? or all or any time

the a/c drain on the firewall is blocked,
get under the passenger side of the car and look up at the firewall, there is an oval 50mm cutout in the insulation, slightly higher than the cutout there is a rubber tube sticking out 10-15mm,(u need to pull the insulation off the firewall a bit)
poke a rod or biro up there to unblock it.
