Air Con Dampness / Misting


Just looking for some advise.

My air con keeps blowing out warm air (when set to cold) after it has rained, and smells a bit damp and usually mists up the front windows too. I thought perhaps the gas had gone or the compressor was failing, but after a few days of no rain (dried out) it goes back to working perfectly! Freezing cold air on a hot summers day.

Should I get Honda / a garage to look at it, or is this something I can fix myself? I guess I just have a leak, but have no idea where to start. Any help or advise greatly appreciated.

Cheers dude.

Just had a look, seems to be fine. Not damp and looks pretty new (I think it was replaced in March during service) I'll check it again as soon as it rains, to see it it's any different.

Any other ideas?

It could be the faulty relay.
