    Hi let me first say hello to every one on this fantastic forum.
    I have recently bought my first Honda (CR-V) and I am loving it already. One small issue I have is that when I have been for a drive and turn the car off It starts to drop water from underneath. The water is clear and cool. It's not from air on as I do not put it on. Expansion tan level as not gone down.
    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance

    Welcome!

    It most likely is excess vapour from the air con. My 8th Generation Accord did this and my current 4th Generation CR-V does it too, and I hardly ever use air con. This country simply isnt hot enough to warrant using it. Honestly, I wouldn't worry mate.

    Also, get some pics up of your motor! Good to have you join! :Hey:

    If you have climate set to Auto the A/C will be on, you probably have to manually turn it off. It will be condensation from the A/C drain.

    I'm the owner of a fourth gen CR-V and I totally agree with Dave. If you have the climate control set to auto the air con is always on. You ned to turn the air con off and this will reduce the condensation dramatically.

    Welcome to HK Trev. :Hey:

    Yes there can be a considerable condensate drain from aircon. My 8th Generation deposits a lot of aircon condensate on the ground particularly at the moment with the high humidity.

    Let's see some picture of your car.
