Not sure if this is the right forum but......Anyone else have the problem of the aircon unit spilling waste water onto the passengers-side floor in a BA XT? Where do I start in tackling this problem, every time I get into it the windows a completely fogged over and turning on the A/C to clear the windows just adds to the problem!

Boss had the same problem in his BA futura. tok it into ford and they did something to it to fix it. unsure what tho. from memory it was to do with condensation buildup in the vents or something.

Sounds like the drain tube for the aircon is blocked. From memory it will be somewhere under the bonnet, up near the firewall on the passengers side. It will be easier to find from underneath. Will just be a small tube that just sticks out and is quite possibly green in colour. 8-)

I had the same problem in my au. i took it to the mechanics and yes it was the drain tube which was blocked.
So it might be the same for yours.
