Just opened the garage and they is a pool of very sticky amber coloured liquid by the driver side rear wheel.

It looks like a possible Hydraulic Fluid Leak from the rear brake is this possible and anyone had it happen?

(brake pads and disc are shot and need replacing)

Thanks
 
Shouldn't be sticky, brake fluid is not very viscous. Could it be gearbox oil from an output shaft seal leak? Had that on mine. Seals easy enough to change but get the depth you put the seal into the box correct.
 
It is way to clean and sticky to be oil
 
Only other things that spring to mind is driveshaft gaiter split leaking grease or shock leaking, neither of which seem to fit your description. I'm intrigued now, I want to know what it is . :D
 
I'm going for shock absorber.

It looks like honey and smells like ... awful but its is very clean.

I will have the wheel off at the weekend and investigate.
 
Had the wheel off and it looks like a leaking rear diff.
