Hi there,

Well, I fear I may have my first oil leak, but I call on you experts to let me know if it's in a common area or not etc! Photos at:

http://www.photobox.ie/album/5498271

I put cardboard down last night under the car to see if there were any leaks, and to my heart ache... there is.... it's on the drivers side, just ahead of the back wheel where the 2 sills meet. The photo shows exactly where it is. The leakage in the photo is when I parked at 9pm last night until 9am this morning... so 12 hours worth.

What do you guys and gals think?

Thanks,

Adrian

Adrian,

It may be a leak from your oil level sender. The sender is fitted into the inside of the wheel arch. Or it could be a leak from the pipes lower down. I had to have my sender and pipes replaced recently to fix a similar issue.

This may help you a little:

and and exploded view of the oil system:

I had a similar drip which came from a leak where the oil pipe from the filter console (which runs inside the wheel arch) goes in to the oil thermostat housing. As it got no worse I just left it for about 12 months until the thermostat stuck closed and I had to replace the whole lot anyway! You can easily check the source of the leak by removing the shark's fin.
Best of luck
Mike.

I had a similar leak before my last service - it was a pinhole in the oil pipe which runs to the front oil cooler.

looks like the 2nd filer position, 'hopefully' it's just a leaking filter
