Coolant leak - top of case - with fix

Noticed coolant on the floor after a track day. Figured it was overflow, cleaned it up, and let it sit. After a while, noticed more coolant. Was dripping down the front cylinder and along the group of overflow hoses. Finally traced it down to a coolant connector on the top of the case.

Access to the hose clamp is a serious pain. Purchased a very long #2 phillips from Lowe's, took out the coolant reservoir bolt (tight fit), lifted a bit, tightened clamp, and put the bolt back in.

Here are a couple pics. Pretty simple but it took me a while to find this guy...hopefully it saves someone some time.

Just to add, for any that find a leak, I thought the above was the case with my new 'strada, however the hose clamps on the rad just needed a little tightening!!
