Primera\'s Air Con - Carl
Quick question for Dave N, and others too

I have just noticed a water leak, with water dripping onto the steering rack. I could not see where it was coming from, and on removing the fuel filter housing (diesel model), have found water dripping from a small plastic stub pipe passing through the bulkhead

The water is clear and is not coolant, and I therefore assume it to be condensate from the air condtioning.

I am right in assuming that this is an overfill from the ventilation plenum chamber, and it is dripping because the main drain is blocked ???

I have removed the ventilation fan and pollen filter, and the inside of the ductwork is dry as a bone, but the stub falls after the evaporator and I can\'t get to it.

Condenstate usually drips from about the position of the middle of the dashboard under the car, and I assume there is an outlet there. Is it just a question of poking a piece of wire through the outlet until it is clear ???

The small stub pipe you refer to *is* the air-con condensate drain. It sounds as if everything is OK.

My concern is that water used to drip from under the car, whereas now it is dripping out the stub and onto the steering rack instead/as well

If the car isn't filling up with water then I'd not worry about it Carl. Sounds normal to me.

Aprilia, you are correct, I swear that there is a lower drain which I noted whilst changing the oil, however I have just been under the car and stand corrected, the stub is the condensate outlet.

Moral of the story, stop worrying and keep on driving !!!
