I been having a puddle of water under my C5 and today took the panel off from under ther Glove box (access to relays) and noticed that the foam cover from the panel was wet. Also there is a round (4"+/-) metal unit above the panel that has a sponge gasket that seems to be where the water is dripping from.

What is this part (a/c evaporator ??) Whats the fix and rough cost ???

Thanks

First, since you're getting "water" and not coolant, check to make sure the tube which drains the hvac housing of condensed water is not obstructed. If that drain plugs-up, you'll get water in that locale.

Had that problem with my 2000 Monte Carlo SS. The A/C drain tube was plugged. Local Chevrolet dealer charged $40 plus tax to fix.
