Horrible game of whats my leak lol.
Near front end of car. Not constant. Think maybe condensor? Or washer fluid? Fingers crossed.
Its not pink as is my coolant. Its not oil. Not fuel. The green tinge is mossy bits.
No lights on dash. No horrible noises.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks

I'm assuming it's definitely not water from the air con? You use it a lot in the winter to dehumidify the air when demisting.

Can i just confirm the pictures are taken o/s/f and behind the front wheel Not in front of it ?

Assuming that's the case then its coolant as there is a pipe right where the leak is .. you don't always see a pink colour .

PAS fluid .. it is green .. obviously oil and if that much had leaked out you would have an empty reservoir.

washer fluid .. the bottle is n/s/f under the rear section of the arch liner .

A/C drips onto the under tray .. similar place to this leak but on the n/s of the car.

Yes off side from behind front wheel mate.
Coolant is just above minimum at the moment.
Is the pipe likely an easy fix do you think?

Cheers

It's not hard but you need all the undertrays off to get at it .. couple of images which funnily enough i've just posted on another thread here shows you what i think .

The small rubber pipe is the rear most ones of the crossover pipes .. when doing this job ( crossover pipe replacement ) then these are also replaced .

Right click on the images and select view in separate tab to get a far larger image .. chrome .

Cheers for your help.

You might get away with just a single pipe but i'm afraid the crossover pipes are pretty common .. if replacing as the image .. the whole lot basically then yes im afraid its circa £1k to £1200 .

A garage will soon say what's needed and you can always take photos and send them to me to get my opinion if you wish .

Cover the new ones in waxoil .. acf 50 and they should last you from here onwards .


The leak is almost always a slow one , you have a warning message if the coolant bottle gets too low so your never really going to run it dry and cook the engine.

To be honest it still needs investigating but i'm afraid other than the brake reservoir there's nothing else in that area .
