  1. A/C leaking on front passenger carpet

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Just noticed this today. It is definitely related to the A/C as it hasn't rained recently and the water is fresh just after I drove the car for an hour with the A/C on. Everything I look at online is to clear the A/C drain under the car with compressed air, which I will do as soon as I can...
