Default What is this leak?

Hi

Hope you can help diagnose what the leak is.....

It was found on the right hand side under the bumper aligned with the right side of the radiator. The liquid is lime green, gungey.

It doesn't resemble either my coolant or washer fluid...




Coolant levels are fine and all pipes are attached with no leaks...

So good init
One of my wife's faves too!

A few years ago they had it on at the local cinema. Tuesday night and it was over capacity. People sitting on the stairs watching it - best cinema atmosphere ever. Majority of crowd knew the film backwards anyway.

Might whack this on tonight now - I'm all geared up now.

I was always torn between "if it's bleeds, we can kill it" or "stick around" as my favourite lines from the film!!
