If you dont use your a/c regularly - i.e. at least once a week it will pack up. Says so in the manual and it happened to me on each of the last 3 Vauxhalls I had. Use it or lose it!
On a humid day the a/c pulls moisture out of the air and dribbles it out under the engine. I was watching this while my car was up on the ramps having the wheel alignment checked. It really is a lot of water!
No, loads of cars dribble the water from the A/C - not a problem. Lived in america for a while and all the cars out there had A/C and they used to dribble! You should use your A/C regularly to keep all the workings lubed etc. I turn it on only for a small amount of time pretty much every week, but not when im wanting to save fuel or toast someone!
Agree - I leave my a/c on 24/7 (except in the circumstances that Simon describes of course!). The water that the a/c extracts from the air has to go somewhere, and being a Renault they thought it may as well just dribble out behind the engine. I often find a puddle on the garage floor in the morning.
