On my 05' st i have the normal condensation leaking out from under the midsection of the car after running the air.
I noticed that there is also water dripping in front of the passenger front wheelwell. It's inclosed so i can't inspect inside there. Normal?

That's where the accumulator is. You're fine. When humidity is high, water can condense on and drip from any of the low-pressure parts of the system, including the A/C Lines, the accumulator, and even inside the car. There's a tray that's supposed to catch the water inside the car and drain it out, which is where most of the water you see dripping is coming from. However, the accumulator has quite a bit of surface area. The accumulator is the large tank looking thing. The condenser is part of the high pressure side. It looks like a radiator and is mounted in front of the radiator on the Focus. No condensation will form on it.
