Washer bottle may be leaking from the rubber grommet that holds the electric pump in or one of the pipes to the pump may be loose/split.
Simple test,dip your finger in the liquid that's leaked out and dab it on your tongue. Spit it out afterwards of course.
What does it taste of?

It's quite normal to have condensate water dripping from the air conditioning system condenser after a drive. Try turning the air conditioning off for a few days and see if the problem remains.

@pug407ire
When you say "at the front" could you clarify whether this is in front of the drivers side wheel or behind.
In front would seem to point to the washer bottle as there's nothing else there.
Behind may be something else.
I believe the AC condensate drains out on the passenger side just below where your feet would be.

Default 407 water leak?

Hi..

I have 407 sw 2.7 with a coolant leak at the moment..My attention was drawn to it because cold air from heater, despite being on max!! Turns out of course no bl..dy water there to be hot..although you say your temps is fine, if low..Now..I post because its easy to look at water overflow reservoir and think its OK, but the level you are looking at is the STAINED PLASTIC..so ensure remove filler cap, with obvious precautions!! and physically check water/coolant level..This is the mistake I made, despite shaking the car a little when checking...and although I have bigger engine than you I think, my problem is a plastic/nylon 'T' junction type thing directly under a stainless steel pipe about 1" diameter, directly on top of the engine...Currently trying hard to ID it etc, so I can try solve problem..Halfords Autocentre can't help..(Their suppliers dont supply it) IF ANYONE HAS EXPERIENCE OF THIS, PLEASE POST
