If you have a DPF then you shouldn't have any soot.

I would get new pads fitted and see if that cures it but i think it will.(don't forget the copper-slip)

The filter cap and holder are dry no sign of oil.
Just can't see where it is leaking from.
It's going on the ramp first thing tomorrow to take the cover off and hopefully we will be able to see where the oil is leaking from.
Just thought somebody might know of a common place to leak.

Perhaps if you gave your location somebody on here could point you in the right direction of a reputable indi garage.

Check the seal around the oil filter canister.....
Sorry i should have said i changed that yesterday.
I did an oil/filter change about 6 weeks ago but did think about the seal so i got a new one out of a filter box and changed it.
The one i took off yesterday did look thinner but still leaking today.
I always use mann filters and never had any problems in the past.
Thanks for the reply.

Looks like engine oil.
I did check the fluid level and it was ok.
Thanks for the reply.

My e53 3.0d Auto 2002 has just developed an oil leak.
Can't see where from but it drips on the right hand side when you are facing the car from the front.
Anybody got any idea what the common place to look would be.
Any tips welcome.
Thanks for looking.

I would have thought it would be a lot higher but not sure with the can-bus system.
Somebody will have the correct answer soon i think.

Just setup a new computer and had the login problem.
I used the login lower down and that worked.
Strange why the main login at the top is playing up.

Thanks for that. What are the exhaust blanks? Do you mean the bits on the bumper that surround the tailpipes?
