Re: Renault Clio Mk2 Coolant Leak

Fair enough; the air-con drain has caught enough people out, so always worth asking.
Gearbox does not have water in it, so this is coming from outside the 'box.
And touch the water, and smell it. Colour and smell often help.

Small drip off the gearbox, of fluid that seems to be coolant, might well be a pin-***** hole in a radiator hose, spraying fluid onto the box, so it drips down.
I would expect that the front (radiator side) of the gearbox would be wet, and if you look with a torch, you may see the spray coming out of the hose, whilst the engine is still hot.

Big jump in logic, but based on the info so far...
