Exclamation Clear liquid Leak from trans inspection plate

What can this be? It almost seems like coolant/water... It has no smell but has the feeling of coolant!

If it's clear but oily, I'd be thinking Brake Fluid maybe?

Is it a manual transmission? if it is, your clutch slave cylinder is leaking.

I think my slave cylinder just went out. The clutch doesnt work correctly and there is fluid coming out from the bottom of the tranny. It is clear like brake fluid and the reservoir is low. Will this repair be just the slave cylinder or will I have to do more?

How do you remove the slave?
