Condensation in Trunk

I keep finding condensation in my trunk, above the oil/coolant fill.

- I replaced the expansion tank when doing the IMS in April

- I replaced the coolant cap last year. I tried the old one, same problem. I bought another new one last week. All three have yielded no fix.

A brand-new bleeder leaking?

TIA

Same thing happened to me. Turned out to be the bleeder valve o-rings...

+1 One of my o-rings was not fully seated and crimped. Easy fix but take your time.

Wondering if this is a determining factor:

I replaced the plastic shield that covers the bleeder but lets the coolant and oil fill pipes protrude. I'd left this off ever since I started replacing coolant caps and trying to make this problem stop. There was condensation on the bottom of the shield. I guess this wouldn't happen if it was the cap?

I stuck my ear down to the top of the tank after I shut the car off today, I can definitely hear hissing from the bleeder valve. Why can't they install their OWN components properly - sheesh!
