Fluid leaking

Hey guys. I'm new to this forum but have already read a ton of good info. I have a leak on my 08 F350 6.4L. Its coming from the drivers side front of the truck. Its minus 30C here and I don't feel like crawling around under it to find it. Was looking for some options. Its clear fluid and seems to be coming from almost directly behind the rad on the drivers side. The leak is directly below the power steering container but the levels in the power steering have stayed the same. The fluid does not appear to have any smell and does not seem to be oily. I just recently had Ford do the tranny service as well as drain the water seperator. From above the motor I can't see any leak but there is a decent size pool on the ground when I park the truck. Wondering if I should be getting it back to Ford ASAP.

Just an update. Took the truck into Ford today and they confirmed it was the Rad leaking. Seems that the pinch seam to hold the endcaps on is coming loose.
