Re: Q Flood

The same thing has happened to me, and I was plenty worried.
Turns out that the problem was clogged AC drain tubes. All of the
condensation from the AC was filling the resevoir/catcher and overflowing.
Every time I made a hard right my leg would get wet!
See if theyre plugged up (leaf bits, crud, etc.) and blow them out with
compressed air (or clean it out with a wire). 
Not a bad time to add some disenfectant to the resevoir to kill any
lingering bacteria that could be there.
NB: this was on a VW, so YMMV.  I think that this is the problem though.
