Look in from the front right wheel well with the wheel well liner off and it is right there.

That's not the water pump, that's an optional part of the Automated Self-Lubricating Chassis System.

See, cars are known to rust and having a self-lubricating chassis is key to ensuring that the subframe doesn't break down and rust into something akin to a Vega having spent five days in Northern Michigan. The system allows for engine oil to dribble onto the frame and be spread evenly throughout to coat the metal, negating the effects of salt and general weathering.

What you're seeing here is the optional Mechanical Engine Bay Air Freshening Unit. One of the drawbacks of the Automated Self-Lubricating Chassis System is that sometimes that oil can get into parts of the engine bay and heat up, causing a dirty and sometimes burning smell. No one likes a smelly engine bay. This unit drips warm coolant directly onto the engine to release a sweet smell that reminds you of grandma's baking on Sunday or your favorite coffee shop (Not Starbucks, however, since that's not actually coffee).

I would suspect that he needs to replace the unit as it's beginning to drip on the ground, something that it should never lead to. I assume the high-grade rubber tubing that supplies the unit with hot cooling liquid has rotted away due to age.

I do agree it should be changed, since he will have the wheel off anyway, it makes removing the axles easier when you go to pull the engine out to access the unit.
