Drove back from the airport today to find a water puddle on the drivers side of the car, not sure were the puddle came from but think it maybe a leak? No interior lights came on and this is the first time this has happened. When I opened the bonnet nothing was wet al the parts and pipes were dry. Any suggestions?

Hi,check first that it is plain water and not coolant by dipping your finger in it and taste it. If it tastes sweet--it`s coolant.!!

The car was parked at Birmingham Airport on the 4th floor for about 2 and a half hours. drove back home in traffic and the car was fine but Dad's just concerned about the puddle that was on the outside of the car on the floor.

Checked the drive last night and no signs of any water or puddle.
