« on: May 30, 2011, 11:20:57 AM »
I have an oil leak from behind the turbo\'s heat shield on my FD anyone might know where this is from, i can\'t remember what\'s behind the shield. Thanks
Lead me not into temptation, I can find it myself...
But i can always do with some help now due to, my advancing years!

Your turbos are the only thing getting oil on that side of the block, so if you are sure the leak is on that side its either the oil feed, one of the oil returns or the turbos themselves.  Where exactly can you see the oil running from?

Hi It is from the bottom of the shield, front turbo, but is hard to see exactly where.
