Exclamation Leak below my FJ...water? fuel? oil?

I was at Costco, and my wife said, look it's leaking...I looked at the liquid..it didn't look thick like oil, more like water.
Could it be fuel?
I took these pictures...is this just he aircon or something I need a dealer to check out?

What is this part that the leak is coming out of?

(Thank you for your help!)

It drips out of a tube in the engine bay by the firewall in that area. Kinda hard to see with the hood up. Then it runs down the frame sometimes so I zip tied mine to drip on the ground.

Re: Leak below my FJ...water? fuel? oil?

Phew, and phew again...I crawled under the car today to look at everything.

Major observations
1. I can crawl on my back, under the car easily!
2. I don't know what I'm looking at!...keen to learn!...Couldn't identify the pipe that Iconic_ mentioned.

Thru the engine bay. Mines zip tied. My pic is rotated. That's the firewall.

Thanks! I'll have another rumble around the bottom of my car! Never spend so much time underneath!
