The Ac Condenser. Had it happen in a Pontiac Vibe once.

Thanks Noh, what is the fix for something like that? I have an appointment with the dealer tomorrow, and would like to know before I go there

Also, I hear a lot of talk about the sunroof drainage tubes. Could that be the cause? The vehicle is 2 weeks old and should be blocked?

I just had to reconnect the drainage tube. It looked like someone accidentally kicked it and it disconnected. It fixed it and the water and musty smell went away.

Thanks, im hoping that that's all it is with the water leak in the new equinox. I guess it may not have been connected at the factory when car being built. On a different note, you mentioned that the AC condenser caused water leaks. How much water can that cause AND how do you fix that? Thanks for your help so far

It was very wet, like puddling. I would estimate a gallon per day or more. Depending on how hot it is out and how much you drive it of course. But AC condensers in cars do produce a lot of moisture. You can see them drip under a car on a hot day if you look close.

your right on hot days, it does puddle and drain under car. But does it drip water into carpet of driver and passenger floorboards? is that normal?
