On the carpet of the vehicle, or on the ground under it? If on the ground, that's normal. It condensates and drips. If on your car's carpet, that means there is a A/C leak and it is leaking refrigerant in the cab.

It's on the floor, under the carpet. If refrigerant is leaking, a/c wouldn't work but it works fine. It appears condensed water.

Delete the space between(2008- 20) should be (2008-20) for address to work properly.
