red fluid dripping off my drop arm

Recommended Posts

just to confirm my suspicions, i have some red fluid dripping on the floor whenever i stop my 300tdi. theres gunky oil around the boot on the lower part of the drop arm and oil around the top. is this my power steering box leaking? i'm off to the shops later and i'm going to pick up some of that magical stop leak stuff if it is!

cheers all
