    Clutch slave cylinder.

    It won't cause a coolant leak.

    That housing on the end of the cylinder head with the spaghetti of coolant hoses coming out of it, is a likely culprit.

    So more likely the water pump? Is that the spaghetti you referring to?

    I believe he is referring to this bundle of hoses (circled in green) which appear to be coolant hoses going into some kind of plastic junction. If im not mistaken, it looks like a small amount of coolant where I have put the green arrow, which is probably dribbling down and then pooling on the gearbox where you can see the bulk of the pink dried up coolant.

    You need to have a good look around that area with a torch and confirm where the leak is coming from.
