Condensation - front hood


Recommended Posts

Why would my front hood be dripping with condensation - noticed I had lost some coolant - beginning to think one of the front rads or coolant lines has started to leak? Recently had my front A/C condensors replaced recently - could this be linked somehow?

Condensation on the inside of the front hood indicate water infiltration coming from outside, rain or washing water, not cooling water or AC condense, all pipes or connections are under the car. Give a look to the density / adjustment of the hood, rubbers, holes and gapes made for retro fit wiring's coming from the battery area, etc.

Beety:

Also make sure that your front drain holes are not clogged, which would cause puddles of water to collect and possibly cause some condensation. There are two drain holes, one to the left and one to the right of the battery on the "floor" of that compartment.

Those holes get clogged very quickly by leaves and other debris.

There doesn't seem to be any water directly above the battery compartment - it seems to purely be confined to the area sealed by the weatherstrip e.g. the luggage compartment roof - very bizarre....could the heater/ water drain points be responsible for this. I have had this compartment open with engine running and there's no obvious steam coming from anywhere (peeled back carpets etc.)....is this just a quirk of the boxster when the weather gets cold outside?

The holes by the battery thing is the obvious prob, I had that. If those drains get blocked and there's any rain, you'll have water come into the front boot. I'd clear them out before investigating anything else to be honest it's a 5-10 min job, an air-lance is best or a section of bendy hose pipe or wire coat hanger. Failing that, rubber seal is possible but unlikely - unless you didn't close it properly perhaps? . Coolant is pretty much out as any leak enough to form condensation & your system would be running dry & the light wd be on (check coolant level to be sure).
