Hi -

 

My ford Focus Cmax is leaking water, several drops, constantly from underneath. The leak is somewhere near the front, about where the handbrake is, perhaps nearer driver side? I cant tell because the car has a protective plate beneath.

 

What could this be? Its definitely water - I tasted it.

 

Could it be a cracked pipe?

 

If so - what should I do - will it cost a lot to fix?

 

 

Car is showing no problems.

 

Please help - taking the car on holiday in a few days!

 

Thanks

Are you using your aircon?
Condensation from under the car is perfectly normal when the aircon is running.

Thanks.

 

My wife was driving - had baby in the car so had aircon on pretty high as its sooo hot here.

So this could be it.

It was dripping in the road though - quite a lot was coming out. Leaving a small trail.

 

Is this normal?

Totally normal.
Mine often looks like a peeing pup.

If it ever looks coloured or smells sweet then it's time to worry.
I wouldn't taste it though.
