Clear liquid leaking

Hey All,

I have a brand new X3 28i and I noticed today that there is a clear liquid leaking out at the back of the right front wheel well. I figured it might be water from the A/C, but when I smelled it, it smelled a lot like rubbing alcohol. It's under warranty so I will take it in for them to check this week, but wondered if anyone else has seen this?

Thanks
GC

My car occasionally emits an antifreeze odour but I've never seen any puddles.

That's where the windshield washer fluid bottle is located. Maybe it's leaking.

I am taking it to the dealer in the morning. I am hoping it's just something simple like the washer hose has come loose. I will let you guys know.

Did you ever find out what was going on with your X3? Was it the windshield wiper fluid? I just had service at my dealership. Nothing major, an oil service and tire rotation. All of a sudden I have liquid slowly dripping from just behind the passenger wheel well. But, it only happens when I am parked at an incline. Thanks.
