    I recently noticed some spots on the drive so had a quick look under to see if anything obvious is staring at me.

    It's coming from the hole in the sill itself at rhe rear by the control arm mount, but having checked around the brake pipework there are no signs of any leaks.

    Also I checked brake fluid level and it's full so I have no idea what it could be.

    It's definately clear fluid though from inspecting the drops on the drive and where it's gathered around the sill.

    Can anyone possibly shed any light as to what it might be?

    Thank you!

    Yes, guessing the leak could be nowhere near the draon hole but that's where it's getting deposited?

    Could be fun tracking that then...

    Having done a bit of digging around a link to this forum came up from a previous poster with a leak in the exact same place.

    I Have recently done a haldex oil change and apparently if overfilled the excess will deposit through the drain hole, so it's possibly that.

    Strange though as the tube of oil is designed to fill the haldex controller so how do you overfill it? I let it drain for 30 minutes...
