    My guess is if it hasnt happened before and you've had the aircon on, thats where the waters come from, couldnt tell you why but mine does exctly the same.

    e2a: I think the aircon draws the moisture out the atmosphere and the puddle you get is the water whats been removed from inside the car, i think lol.

    The aircon is only needed about twice a year in this country lol

    I'll keep an eye out for the water as i've had mine on all day too.
