My C3 Feel has suddenly started leaking (water) at the bottom just along the exhaust piping (between the diver's and the passenger seat.

I'm not sure where it's coming from but I smelt it and I am sure it's water. I have been driving carefully on a smooth road, theres no way I would have hit a bump or something like that.

Hi C3 Dublin

How strange.

Are you saying that the water is outside of the car?

Yes the water is outside, under the car, in the middle of the car between driver & passenger seat, (just besides the exhaust lining).

It leaks immediately after the vehicle has stopped, then it stops, leaks again after driving. It's a drip, but I'm concerned as it's a brand new car and I haven't hit anything.

Do you have air-conditioning or climate control?

If you switch it off and drive without it, does the dripping disappear?

I don't think you have damaged the underside :)

from the manual wrote:The condensation created by the air conditioning results in a discharge of water under the vehicle which is perfectly normal.
But the manual is not specific on where under the car water would accumulate.
