Water dripping from underside

Hi, we have just purchased an 2000 espace 2.2dt , which seems fine with 55k ; service history : recent cam belt change and service (700 miles ago) I have a couple of concerns that I was hoping someone might be able to help me with. 1 when the air con is switched on there is water driping from the bottom of the car about a third of the way back from the front, the previous owner assured me that it was the condensed water from the air con, we have done about 700 miles in the car and it hasn't lost any coolent, ( and there is quite a bit of water) so is this true??? 2 The car seems to pull to the left a bit, I had the tracking checked and swapped the front to back wheels/tyres, which made it a bit better, the tyres are some right doggey brand "sava", is it worth having the camber/castor angle checked??? Also how easy is it to change the rad, it's not leaking yet, but doesn't look too good.
Regards Richard.

Water dripping from the air-con condenser is perfectly normal, especially in the recent hot and humid weather. It should only be small drips though, and you'll often see a trail of water dots on the dry road surface leading up to where you parked the car. If you're worried, try driving with the air-con switched off and see if the drip goes away.

Have they done four wheel tracking or just checked the front ones? Better tyres might well make a difference, but make sure that the tracking's spot on first, otherwise you'll just be wasting your money.

Just checked the front wheels for toe in : my local place can't do anymore, ( couldn't even spell Lodge, I thought I was bad), they will do I free re-check after 200 miles.
