hi guys a mate has just come back from a wheel and found oil leak at the front lower block.
just wondering what is most common to leak at the front crank seal or pump don't think it's coming from the timing cover. is there a bung on the side above the air con somewhere i can't see.? as the air con has alot of oil on the bracket.

Most probably the crank seal. Mine went after the car had been sitting for a week with no sign of a leak, took it for a 15km drive to the airport and parked up. Walking back to the car I saw some drops of oil on the ground, Popped the bonnet and there was oil sprayed everywhere. The mechanic showed me it after it was pulled out and it was rock hard. Mine had just done 220k.
