05 pilot.

There is some sort of fluid dripping off the tie rod of the inner passenger side rear wheel. Just noticed it today. Seems like a decent amount had leaked.

Anyone have an idea what this might be? Its definitely some kind of oil, not grease.

See if your brake fluid reservoir is low. I don't know what else would leak next to a rear wheel. Unless the rear shock seal has sprung a leak. Check around the shock absorber.

See if the inner boot on the half shaft axle at the differential is full of fluid. It might be differential fluid if the axle seal at the diff. is leaking.

My vote is for PS fluid leaking from the rack and pinion.

Curious how PS fluid would get to the rear wheel.😁

I replaced the rear shocks on my 2003 yesterday and the right rear had a bubble of fluid trapped that I am sure would have leaked out had I let it go much longer. I bet that is the issue.
