Hi All

could be a few things, is there a leak on the screen wash bottle, pipe or pump, is the radiator or any pipes leaking

without sounding ilike im just taking the p*ss, Have you got clear odourless Fluid as a coolant ?? Doubtful so i still reckon its aircon compressor related. my last 407 used to dribble like an incontinent granny all summer long.
this 407 doesnt however BUT the aircon isnt cold either.

Does it do it when stood still ?? if so place a large piece of cardboard underneath and you will see where the drips are starting from

The aircon on my previous car came on automatically when the heater control was set to windscreen only, there was no indication, light, that this was happening, could this be the same in your case.

Dip your finger in it???If its clear,odorless and tasteless it will be the AC outlet for sure.
Cooling system or washer bottle fluid smells and tastes horrible.
Mind you it could be rain water collecting somewhere?? we have had a few storms lately.

It looks like its dripping somewhere around the front or middle of the engine and dribbling out the back of the undertray onto the ground but does have cold aircon

Its not the AC leaking anything the system has gas, AC systems creates excess moisture and there is an outlet pipe under the car in the middle where the heater is.

It has a greasy feel but is clear and has not odour or not much of an odour if its diesel can that lose it odour im kinda hoping its ac but I don't use it at the moment have deliberately avoided it for 2+ weeks to try and find the problem its definitely not coolant that never goes down and I dive 100 miles a day so would have been noticeabl4e by now I only ask about diesel as I can faintly smell it in the vents.
