Right, quick idiot question. Noticed under the hood of my M5 today this thing at the front near where the factory fit alarm is, appears to be leaking.

Any one tell me what it is, and how bad it is that its leaking? Didn't appear to have one on my 535i that looks similar at all, i'm guessing PAS fluid reservoir or brake fluid reservoir..... someone please embarass me!!!

Apologies for the lack of understanding of basics!!!

Cheers,

Thanks for that!! Guessed it was something like that.... should it be leaking where it is? Is that a sign of overfilling?

First try to clean it and check for level. I think that inside it there is a screwed metal top and than the usual cap. look for the level, clean it outside, just look someone overfilled it some time ago. I see some dust on it.
