Leak under car

What is leaking? Under driver Side (eu Model). The color is Red but I think it is not cooler. I Do not smell anything about this Red liquid.

Gears go on Normal, but now car is parked while repair. I thank anyone Who could tell what should be cause.

Re: Leak under car

Oh, I deleted my answer.

I have only petrol and coolant is only Red in my car. There is nothing leak in engine side when I looked over engine.

This area in pic is near driver door. Only gearbox oil came to my mind but if it leaks, should it be in this area?? In my mind is more water than oil. There is three seal and this first is little bit worse.

No, but have to be sure and check again. Only washer, coolant and Brake liquid if remember right. If this steering is in engine bay, it should be visible I guess?

Re: Leak under car

Nothing should be coming out of there. Most likely culprit is coolant from a heater hose under the bonnet running down the bulkhead and getting in the chassis box section. If the car is right it should not use any coolant at all. Second possibility is air con drain doing something similar.
