Q: Clear liquid is leaking from the right side of the car, where could this be coming from?

asked by on

I don't know if the cv axle is leaking or if it's another engine oil leak. The cv axle is new. The leak is coming from the right side of the car. The liquid is clear and it kind of looks like brake fluid. All reservoirs are full and nothing is low on fluid. I have not checked the transmission fluid because it is a manual and it is difficult to check. The transmission is working properly with no issue.

My car has 281738 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
