My 9-3 Combi had had a mystery coolant leak for years that I could never track down. Every few months I would get a Coolant warning on the SID, then I'd top up the tank. Repeat in a month or so. A dealer replaced the radiator 4 years ago or so. My indie shop had done dye tests and pressure tests. I just figured it's minor and I'd keep topping it up.
I just got the car out of storage for winter use and began going through issues. One was low coolant. I put over 3.0L of water in - way more than before. Usually it was ~500mL. I drove to get my kid from school and got a coolant low warning. Now there's water on the garage floor. I jacked up the car + jackstand (safety first!) to find the leak. The drip is coming from the plate in the picture. I couldn't get all the way under to see what's above this plate. Any idea what the leak could be?
