Hey guys

Any help would be great...
EF Falcon future, Manual.

Every time i turn the aircon on.... it begins to leak water into the passenger side floor... You can see it start running down the front down into the footarea.

What could be causing this... is this a common fault? !!!

Thanks guys!

Well if it does it while the heater is operating it is most likely coolant - best way is to put a tissue or whatever on the footwell and soak some up, to ascertain what it is.
I'd say most likely that it is condensation off the evaporator that can't drain away.

Yeah drain is in the firewall where the A/C line go through. Can clean it out yourself if you want. A/C joints will probably charge about 50 for doing it for you.

get under your car...look at the firewall on the passenger side...you should see a small pipe hanging down...this is where the water should be cmonign out...try shoving a wire or something up there to unblock it....
