Fluid leak near front of battery


custom title
Oct 24, 2018
I noticed a small puddle of water underneath my car and looked to find a continuous slow drip near the front of the battery. It was parked for less than 2 minutes and I had the AC running. Is this from the AC condensation or something I should have service look at?

Video below:

Had this recently (unusually hot in Scotland this summer so used A/C more than usual), Model 3 was parked near level and dripping from the middle of the front end of the battery (as in the video).

Later the same day, when parked on a slope nose up, seem to drip from the back of the battery pack instead, seemed to be water running along some edges then dripping even further back as well… still tasted like water.
