Need Help with Part ID & Function

See below:



The part in question is the rubber hose that's leaking fluid in the photo. It's located in the engine compartment, underneath the car, on the passenger side.

Is fixing this simple or does it require major disassembly?

Bump.

C'mon, one of you guru's out there must know what this is. The car has Tip, the leak is orange colored fluid, oily. Doesn't look or feel like motor oil to me. Tranny fluid? Power steering?

really hard to tell the orientation of this but it appears to me that it might be the bleeder from your clutch. I don't know about the orange color of the fluid though. I thought Porsche used ATE gold or something similar. I guess it might turn orange (ey) if it is old or burnt. Have you had your brake fluid changed recently? Check the level and color of your brake fluid and see if it matches up or if the level is low. Is this an active drip (fluid on the ground) or just residue that you noticed?

Right. Guess I should have read it a little closer. Maybe someone with a Tip and a Bentley can figure it out. If no one here can I am sure someone over at renntech would know.

I've got a Bentley, looked through every pic I could find and couldn't ID it. It goes back to the dealer on Monday - this leak appeared after they did the RMS, perhaps due to disconnection/reconnection. It's a clear and clean orange fluid, doesn't appear to be oil. My guess is that it is either ATF fluid or from the power steering.
