    Green stuff leaking - transmission oil??

    I noticed that there were a few drips of a lime green/yellow (similar to a fluorescent highliter in colour) fluid in the snow after I had reversed down the drive this morning - anyone know what it might be?

    It seems to be coming from the the middle of the car, not sure if its near the front or back though.

    I know it isn't power steering fluid, screenwash, coolant, brake fluid or engine oil as they are the wrong colour and the only other fluid I can think of is the transmission - does anyone know what colour this is, or have any other ideas what it is?

    Thanks.

    Well, it wasn't there just before I reversed down the drive and I don't have a weak bladder!!!

    It looks like it must be the AC - hadn't really thought of that, but it does seem like that is the most likely cause.

    Thanks for the help everybody.

    I still haven't had a look underneath the car to see if I can find the leak, but it is due a service in the next few weeks so I will just get the dealer to have a look at it - still under warranty thankfully!

    AC Fluid, nothing else, I also once noticed it in the snow. AC fluid has a distinct florescent tinge to it and is quite unmistakable.
