    Hi guys, I'm new one here but I've been lingering for a while.

    I've got an A170CDi which is fully auto, and I've just bottomed it out on my drive at home. Realising what I'd done I stopped immediately and got out to check for any damage, and it's sprouted a leak from just behind the front nearside wheel. I'm guessing this is auto transmission fluid, so has anyone had any experience of this and how expensive it's likely to get?

    How near the wheel? And how much? A leak near the wheel might be break fluid.

    It looks to be coming from a black box I'd say 10 - 15 centimetres back. Looking at the Haynes I've got it's suggesting it's the auto box sump.

    I've just been and moved the car so I can inspect underneath, it doesn't appear to have dropped much more fluid out from what I can tell. I'm going to get it checked out tomorrow and see what's what
