    How much liquid is leaking and is it slippery? It could be antifreeze. If it smells sweet it probably is. Don't let any amimals lick it up or they will die. It also could just be a/c dripping off. Or defroster...If you are defrosting windows. I need a little more info if you have it. But these are my ideas as of now. Happy holidays. Jay

The only clear liquid I can think of is water. Say from the rain maybe or the AC. Did u have the ac on and then parked the car? Was it raining out side?

The only clear liquid I can imagine in that area is brake fluid.How do your brakes feel?Check the master cylinder.

get some on you finger and see what it is. Oil will be gold, trans fluid is red, and they will be oily, run water over your finger and see if it rinses off. water from the a/c is just plain water. Open the hood with engine running and see where the leak originates from.
