    Looks and smells like coolant!!!

    Hi all hope some one can help with this, i was At work the other day and had the car running whils I was chatting and I noticed under the car that something was dripping out.
    I have checked all the hoses that I could and all look ok, there are no engine warning lights and nothing comes up when I read it with the basic vagcom.
    Does anyone have any ideas if this is normal just I have never noticed it before but it's only like a small drip every 30 seconds or so and looks kind of like coolant.

    Thanks

    Could just be the aircon, and if it is then this is normal.

    If you have the aircon on for a while and turn car off, you will see a puddle under the car. Some water when on is normal.
