My car leaks what i think is water (no smell, clear, leaves no residue when dry). I see the lil hose its leaking from, and it leads into the passenger side cabin and its clipped onto the side of the passenger side wheel well. My friend said it might just be a drainage for condensated water on the a/c....

If anyone can help that'd be great! Thanks guys. :D

I have seen many lines in the is300 now, the AC area drains back near that area.. U can trace it, but its pretty hard.

Of COURSE it's the AC! There's no other plain water in the car, unless you fill your windshield fluid resevoir with plain water!

You live in Vegas, it's probably as humid there as it is here. My AC has been leaking like a MOFO over the past couple of months. Every time I pull in my garage and get out, there's an "S" shape trail of water down my driveway where the car just was seconds before.

Don't worry about it -- just the air conditioning - the reason that it leaks is that A/C removes moisture from the air and that water has to go somewhere. It's by design.

What does this have to do with Go Fast Stuff, btw?

Wrong. It's condensation from the outside of the compressor. When the freon is compressed back into liquid, it gets extremely cold, and when it's humid, you get alot of condensation.

i have a drip inside the cabin onto my gas pedal, its water, anyone else have this problem? :pissed:
If the drain tube were clogged or misrouted, it could be the same problem. Take it to Lexus and see what they think about it.
