My macBook pro has leaked a clear liquid overnight. It is slightly thicker than water and has a chemical scent. Has anyone else ever experienced this? Apple are yet to offer an explanation.
I really hope that's not the battery - but I have to be suspicious of this one.
It's highly unlikely that the battery would cause that and still work (hence Apple would have known it was the battery). Also - that looks like far more liquid than a MBP battery could hold. Simply the volume of liquid looks greater than the actual capacity of the battery.
And if this was indeed from a battery, in my experience, having dealt with batteries going bad, you would see some form of crystallisation.
