Question for a friend.

I just got a call from a friend who said that in his TJ rubicon he is having a leaking problem of what apears to be water dripping on his driver side floorboard. It is not a top leaking problem as the "water" drips after the jeep is parked even on dry days.
Could it be a compressor issue? What would be on the driver side that would drip what appears to be water??

Thanks in advanced.

Heater core might be leaking.

If it's coolant then usually the heater core is leaking. If it's clean water then the heater-core/condenser box could have a clogged drain. This drain is why you'll see water dripping from cars in the summer. Try smelling the water see what it is. If its clean, try running a coat hanger up the drain tube under the jeep. It could have dirt in it.

Mine is doing the same thing, found out it was a freeze plug, does he have a block heater? Check that also where it goes into the block

Thanks everyone , He said he thinks it is a leak in the windshield. Now he said it happens when he leaves it outside. Anyhow. I will have him check the other items everyone mentioned.

Thanks.
