Water Dripping

Ive seen a lot of what appears to be water dripping from a stub directly behind the freon canister on the firewall of my 99 Wrangler. If you enlarge the pic you can see where the water? Is dripping from. Jeep has been parked for 25 mins and its still dripping and got a pretty decent water run on the driveway. Currently 77 degrees...getting mid 90's during day. Motor temp staying consistent

Is this water dripping normal?

Thanks for the help.

I can't really see where the water is coming from, but let me ask you. IS it very humid? Is this your first summer in your Jeep? I do not want to state the obvious and I am not assuming anything, but could it just be condensation from your A/C.

My 97's A/C blows ice cold, and on humid days, it condensates, and drops a river of water.

Are you running the AC? Does it happen when you don't run the AC? If it's only when you're running the AC, then it's normal condensation coming off of the canister. If it happens all the time, check your fluids. Stick a finger in it and see it's texture/color/smell/flavor. That'll help you figure out what fluid it is. Hope that's helpful

That's your ac condensation drain, this is normal. Mine was actually blowing back in and making a large puddle on my floorboard because the gasket around it sometimes doesn't seal it good. I had to put vinyl tubing on the little stump to make it drain on the ground. It even made a puddle on my floor when using my defrost on a rainy humid day.

Here's the link that solved my problem, maybe it will give you a little peace of mind.
