    It's not leakage... It's condensation, and yes...

    I've noticed on mine the wet spot is bigger if it's real humid. The more humidity, the more condensation.

    i knew about all the dripping being normal but just never owned a vehicle that had that much drainage. i did just charge and repair my system i cranked 3 cans in the system. it is the coldest ive ever had on a car also. thats probably why it gets so much more condensation. it will make my face numb in 5 minutes quick. i love it. cold as a polar bear toe nail.:bigthumb:

    Yes its just condinsation, im an air conditioning tech. completly normal,, all dipends on how much humidity is in the air,, i would be concriend if someone has just put a new charge in your A.C system but all sounds fine. do you still have max air flow from your vents in the dash if you notice after you run your a.c for a long time the air starts to slow down. you might be frezzing your coil up (big ball of ice) then when it sits at home it will all melt off.
