Default Water Drip

2003 V6 Camry. Driving with air conditioner OFF, fan on low speed, outside
temperature 70 , humidity 60 and when stopped, there is water dripping from
below the engine. The water is perfectly clear, no smell and tasteless.
Drips about 8 ounces and stops. Where is this coming from??

Do you perhaps have the dehumidifier on? This runs the AC, which will
cause water to condense on the pipes and drip.

I'm curious too as I see the similar behavior from a 2005 Camry.

Crawl under and look?
Or next time the oil is changed, and someone is under the car, have
them look, or have them let you look.
If it is perfectly clear, chances are it is condensate but I'm not
familiar with a dehumidifier function.

Is the defroster on? that will make the AC comp run just as for
cooling.

It's completely normal provided the water is not red or green as in coolant.
If its plain water, its probably coming from the air-conditioning evaporator
(the evap lives in the car's AC-heater box inside the cabin) as moisture
which has condensed on the evap. Out here in inland Australia, where
humidity is usually low, I still get a little pool of clear water. I've not
checked where the condensate hose is protubing from,..but if you think about
it, apart from the windsreen-washer bottle, what else can it be.

As a test, simply go for a drive for about 20 mins with the AC, off. There
should be no water on the floor in that case.

Found the reason - thanks to poster Nicky -- The defroster was on. When
turned off; the dripping stops.
