HELP! Leak from a new car


Recommended Posts

Picked the new Mark V up on Monday and only just noticed a clear viscous fluid leak (which I presume is oil from the rear which smells like fried onions of all things.

It must have been happening from day 1 as there are small dots of oil all over the garage floor.

Managed to get underneath and take a pic


Ive put a bowl underneath overnight to judge the flow.

The leak appears to be coming from a rounded silver area which is above a black bar between the rear wheels

Going to ring dealership as soon as they open

Any ideas?

Well it turns out it was the seal on the rear diff.

Got the car back from the dealers after a very thorough inspection and seems great.

For the trouble, the first service is FOC and a nice bottle of champagne as an pology.

Top effort form a genuinely gutted dealership
