LEAKING ba fALCON

My Falcon is leaking water through the passenger side, under the dash into the cabin. The service centre says it is condensation from the aircanditioner, however I have emptied 3 buckets out of it....what can it be?

condensation from the ac should only be the odd drip. i have no idea what that would be.

Re: LEAKING ba fALCON

sounds serious fordgirl.

any codensation from the air con should be drained outside.

does the water smell . could be coolant from the motor if there is a leak in the heater pipes.
if it is from the motor it will smell like coolant ( take the cap off your coolant tank , RHS under the bonnet) and see if it smells the same.
have you checked the coolant level , because if it is leaking that much coolant , the motor will cook.

has it been raining there where you are??
could be a leaking windscreen. might need to be resealed.

should save the water in some bottles to show the guys at ford how much it is leaking.
then if they wont fix it you will have something to throw at them anyway.

Re: LEAKING ba fALCON

Had a BA at work today with similar complaint. Checked the A/C drain ( on trans tunnel, above the trans), and it was clear. Coolant level was OK, no signs of stains anywhere on the heater box. Bloody mystery!!

Mine has had this problem. At each service they would unblock the condensation drain hose and the next day I would still get wet feet. It wasn't till it had about 80,000 km on it that they finally fixed it for good.
