    Yes,it's usually the perspiration from the A/C,but the A/C drainage tube has a leak and hence when we took the car out for a km drive,we did not switch on the A/C and last the car was out with A/C on was 14 days back.So,what is this fluid collection for a radius of 5 cms under the car??,It could not be oil as oil spreads fast and we have that experience too.We did not wash the car,so what is this fluid collection underneath???

    How old is your car? Is the water leaking from the windscreen wiper tank?

    Hi Bala,

    Did my " how to upload a pic" tutorial help?

    Kindly upload some pics of your Linea's underbody ( from where it's supposedly leaking) and of the fluid which has gotten deposited on the floor.

    Cheers.
  8. by any chance did you use the windscreen clean function before driving the car?? if yes this can be the culprit where due to loosening of the carrier tubes it spills water underneath the car...

    a pic will surely help as advised by others...

    Hi Gurjinder,
    Your delailed guidance did throw some light about posting pictures but I still need others' help!!!(in future an entrance exam to become a member of TFI should be mandatory!!!,just kidding,I'll try)
    About the fluid collection,my car did go to the TASS today and the A/C drainage tube leak was fixed in few minutes and was told that the entire tube needs replacement and that they will place the order.About this fluid collection,it was also attributed to the A/C drainage leak,though the car was never taken out with A/C on for 15 day(there was still a fresh collection).Any how,the car is back and I shall post tomorrow if the collection has disappeared.
    No Sanjeev,the windscreen cleaner was not used but there is a possibility that there might be a leak.The collection was colourless and odourless.
    Lets see if it happens again after fixing the A/C drainage leak.

    Keep a watch on all fluid levels, it may throw some light.
