Has anyone noticed that the passenger side bottom vent at the left foot drips water from the evaporator pipe and out the vent on to the floor?
I am tiring to ascertain if this a problematic issue on this car.
The "dealer" is at a loss to explain this, It is definitely dripping from the evaporator pipe and is blowing out of the bottom foot duct on to the interior floor
I guess the next step is to contact the area service rep and see what he can do. ......stay tuned!
This is a known issue. See TSB CLI020 (June 2013).
I tried to attach it but it was too large. Here is what it says:
"This bulletin provides information relating to the possible presence of moisture on the
passenger side floor during A/C operation on some Rio vehicles produced from October
15th, 2011 to September 20th, 2012 (for 4DR models) and July 11th, 2011 to September
20th, 2012 (for 5DR models). This condition may be due to insufficiently insulated evaporator
lines allowing condensation to form on the lines which then drips onto the passenger floor.
To correct this condition, install additional insulating material over the evaporator lines as
outlined in this bulletin, making sure to completely wrap the lines from the evaporator core to
the expansion valve, in order to prevent condensation from recurring."
