Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2005 VW Jetta leaking fluid from around
the front driver's side wheel area... The fluid is thin,
NOT like oil, and has a kinda brownish/green tint to
it... What could this be???

Struts are spring-covered shock absorbers. The strut you pictured is leaking. Needs to be replaced. When one goes, the others aren't far behind, so you need all four, especially if they are original to the fourteen year old car.
