Dripping water
#1
Any idea why water drips from under the car when it's parked on a slope? This is from the driver's side about the middle of the sliding door. The water isn't coming from the door itself, it's about 4 or 5 inches in from the sill.

Put up a photo.
I suppose if at least its draining its better than if it stayed trapped.
It is on my to do list.
But not right at the top

Do you have the Aircon running, and only noticed the condensation drips when it's on a slope? Sorry for exploring the simple items to rule out first. But my mind has a logic system I can't shut off, always starting with ludicrously obvious things.

Was the vehicle wet when you parked it, or did condensation occur while it was parked overnight?  It's surprising how much water can drain off the paintwork.  My old M49 is usually parked with the driver's side on a kerb, and even after just a dewy morning there's often a big damp patch on the road under the passenger's side, sometimes even trickling away halfway across the road.

There's a device underneath in that area with cooling fins on it..
Might be that.

Aha! I looked at Haynes and it turns out that I have a fuel cooler. I thought my fuel was pretty cool already, but presumably there is a good reason for having it.

None of those things was causing it, but thanks. See Evdama's reply.

Thanks, but I have no aircon. Evdama solved it.

You're welcome anyway! I was also envisaging a forward or backward slope, rather than sidewards, which when I saw sidewards, it already put pay to my suggestion!
