Driving on highway w/ AC on I noticed a few drops of cold water on my RIGHT foot. It happened again later when i made a turn. Is this condensation? if so, is it normal? :dunno: It was the first time & it wasnt raining.

I have driven a number of cars that have had that problem (a couple of Hondas would get the carpet soaking wet ... passenger side).

It is condensation, BUT it shouldn't be inside the car. You don't want condensation (water) under the dash, which is where it would come from. It is more likely a clogged drain or a drain with a crack in it. The drains (2, one on each side of the bell housing) are rubber tubes with a pinched end (to keep critters out). Sometimes the end gets clogged and the leaking begins.

If you look under the car after you stop, you will (normally) see two small puddles of condensation ... on the ground, where it should be.

I would have an A/C knowledgeable guy check it out.
