Water

car is dribbling underneath as if the AC is on but its not. Straight water it appears to be and not coolant? dripped to much to be just moisture. I cant seem to see where its coming from but that black canister in the top left corner appears to be wet.

That black canister you are describing is the receiver/dryer. Is it this:



It gets very cold when the A/C is on...are you sure the A/C is not operating when you say its off? Are you using the windshield defrost mode? If so, this operates the A/C compressor.

Yes that is what I am speaking of. The top of it where those tubes connect seems to be a bit wet. No AC is off and setting is turned to off even moved the control to heat and still dripping. Its definitely water, no smell or colour and I use coolant in my car, so what could cause that much water?

that canister only holds the R134A refrigerant . if it is leaking it would not be water.
check to see if all drain holes are clear and also the condenser tray drain is also not clogged.
there should be drain holes in the wiper motor/arm area which is under the plastic cover. use a flash light to see if its full of water. this does happen due to leaves and dirt buildup .

Ac is off, but is your defrost running? At times you ac compressor will kick in when defrost is running.
