Looks like it could either be coolant or power steering fluid. Either way get it looked at asap.

won't be power steering fluid, the bmax power steering is electric.

I stand corrected, thanks for pointing that out, we can all learn something.
I went by the colour of the drip in the photo.As i've only seen that colour in power steering fluid i assumed it could be that.
It would help if the op said what the item in the picture is.

atf automatic transmission fluid is often that colour too. (but again won't be that in this case since its a manual transmission)
yes it would help if the photos had a bit more 'context' one shows a drip both at the top and bottom of the photo, but difficult to work out which way is up

hi..mine is the same..i looked into it and found that it may be a seal near the pump.this involves dismantling half the engine to fix..ie top and chain covers off..this looks expensive..as a side note the pump has a hole that sometimes leaks..mine was replaced but i still have a leak nearby..will have to save up methinks:sad:

the hole in the pump is there to indicate coolant passing the barings - ie water pump about to give up.
the op problem could also be the thermostat housing
I suggest they take it to a local garage, suggest where they get their mot's done. and get the drive belt changed at the same time
