    Default Water dripping under car?

    So, as I said in a previous thread I bought a 2.8 elite a couple of weeks ago. Today my girlfriends Zafira was in the garage to have the aircon repaired so she's been driving mine whilst I was at work. Anyway, she came to pick me up and said she'd heard a "rattling like a tin can" when she pulled away from a junction, but that it stopped when she stopped the car and it hasn't done it since.

    Anyway, when she told me this I had a look under the car to see if the exhaust had fallen off and everything looks intact! What I did notice however is quite alot of water dripping down just inside the OSF wheel, just behind the suspension (see the pic, sorry for the quality, I'm going to go jack it up and see if I can see anything). From googling it seems like this is probably just condensation fromthe a/c, but it's got me a bit worried based on the tin can rattling noise! Anyone got any ideas?

    Thanks

    check the expansion bottle and coolant level as well

    Leaking coolant was solved with a new pressure cap on the expansion tank.

    thanks everyone. We've been out in the car this evening and there was a metallic rattle coming from the storage in the arm rest, which she said "oh, what's that, sounds a bit like the noise earlier", i'd put a keyring and some other metal bits in there, far cry from the sound of the exhaust falling off! women eh?!?
