'99 996 AC too cold and leaking


Recommended Posts

I just had both condensers replaced and the AC is blowing super cold air. However it is actually so cold that I have water dripping in both footwells when i go around corners and last night i had condensation around all vents along with window misting. (FYI - I live in the Cayman Islands so it is always hot). The next morning I also had a significant amount of water in the passenger foot well. I've played with the temperature, going from hi to low, but the temperature of the air blowing doesn't change. Even when set on high the air flow doesn't get any warmer. Does this mean I have no heater? The fan speed adjusts but that doesn't really help. I don't know the technical details of the 996 AC system so is this likely to be a faulty AC control unit, faulty heater core or could it just be something as simple as a disconnected wire or faulty connection?

Purchased used..??

The A/C can be made a LOT more efficient by blocking the engine coolant to the heater core. Check to make sure some previous owner hasn't done that.
