What causes condensed water to leak from the air conditioning system?

Expert Solution
To determine

The cause of condensed water leaking from the air conditioning systems.

Explanation of Solution

In an automobile, the air conditioning system is used to remove heat from the passenger compartment and is moved to the outside of the vehicle.

When the system activates the compressor, it compresses the refrigerant which is in the vapour form. This compressed air is sent to the condenser and the heat is moved to the outside air. The condenser condenses the refrigerant from vapour to liquid. If this condensed water leaks from the air conditioning system, the probable causes are:

1. Blockage in the condenser pipe:
2. Block condenser pipes tame the water to drain outside the vehicle and cause the water to flow inside the car floor...
