Red face 05 C230 Kompressor Saloon

Hi Fellow MB Owners,
We have a 05 Mercedes Benz C230 Kompressor&it has been doing some strange things of late
It's a nice car,silver with black interior with 110k's from new
Recently had the A service carried out&some front end suspension work&wheel alignment
I notice when i back the car into it's parking spot,a trail of water
It's not condensate from the air conditioner
Yesterday (Sunday) it was a lot&i couldn't believe it
I look underneath&can't see water dripping out?
Are those symptoms a faulty water pump?
Kompressors are a bit noisier than a 190E on idle i notice&generally you can hear if a pump bearing is growly
I had a tech look at it&tells me it's the condensate from the aircondiioner?
I'm familiar with "Puddles" left by an airconditioner,so what does he know?
I check the water level&it shows where it should be&thus far without removing the undertray,to examine further
Would any expert be able to throw light on the problem?
They are a nice package in a small car,but from what i read they seemed to be besieged with ongoing issues
If some 1 could e-mail me info@strutwise.com
Any help greatly appreciated
Best Regards
