Puddle of water and drip around near side front wheel.

How normal, I’d only just started the car? I don’t want to go out and break down.

 

thanks

I’d just like to add that I went on a long journey yesterday and the puddle appeared when I started the car about two hours ago.

 

thanks folks

As Clive says, that is normal. Assuming that the puddle isn’t a small lake!

I remember 40 odd years ago, when I had an early Range Rover with aircon (rare in those days), people used to approach me in car parks to tell me that my radiator was leaking.

It was only the moisture extracted by the aircon. Actually, that aircon unit was rubbish: It used to freeze up if used for more than a few minutes, and the air circulation in the car was also very poor.

Mine does much the same, but not every time. It's the aircon condenser shedding the moisture it extracts from the air coming into the car. My last 5 cars have all done much the same, but my XF not so much at  the moment, maybe dur to a dry cool winter.

Thanks for the replies folks. It’s been fine today, it’s just that I’ve never seen it happen before. It was actually my wife who noticed it as I drove off.
