First, you must understand this, your evaporator is not leaking water. That is impossible! (It may leak refrigerant) but not water.
Evaorators, in an automotive A/C system, "evaporate heat" from inside the cabin, to the outside atmosphere. They do this by circulating refrigerant through the A/C system (which includes the evaporator). This refrigerant absorbes "heat" and releases it to the outside atmosphere.
Your issue, is the condensation that is a result of airconditioning.
There are many factors that can cause excessive condensation to build up on the evaporater. The most common is the level of the refrigerant.
How much refrigerant is in thre system?
