Leaking pipes

I have a problem with my car, theres a red oily fluid coming from a pipe that’s corroded.
the pipe snakes it’s way from the centre near the gearbox and upto the wheel arch 
the area of the leak is behind the front off side wheel (rhd) 94 tiptronic.
could it be transmission fluid or power steering fluid?.
im Having difficulty finding part numbers for any of the pipes.

    I assume your brakes are operable .. 
     
    And presume you have downloaded PET from the links .. from the geography you mention I'd guess power steering, but that usually begins to leak from rack seals.
     
    HTH, cheers, Maurice

    PET = Porsche Elektronischer Teilekatalog (Porsche electronic parts catalogue) and it's the bible listing almost every spare part by original Porsche part no., in detailed sketches grouped around logical sections of the car. All models covered in this way, most downloadable from Porsche direct. 993 version referred to by Maurice is at http://www.porsche.com/al.../en/E_993_KATALOG.pdf.

    Gute Fahrt!

    My tip pipes started leaking in November (2017), only one of the pipes was in stock at that time (with a vague indication from Porsche of availability from maybe February onwards). So my indy (Tuthill, Banbury) arranged for one of the pipes to be custom made up. Luckily, the radiator was salvageable.

    Reckon it must have been some glitsch in the software that uploaded it 3 times, as I just clicked on the regular 'submit post' button as usual...

    Gute Fahrt!
