Re: Advice for newbie 156 2.4 jtd owner
I don't have any leaks, but it's worth checking all the rubbers round the glass and round the rear hatch. Check inside the rear wheel arches too - they are lined with "carpet" on mine. Check that hasn't come away. Are you sure it is a constant leak, and not just one big spill which hasn't dried out?
Funnily enough, my oil looks very tar like too (4,000 miles since main dealer service), and I am popping into the dealers later this week, so I will ask them.
Windscreen washers can get blocked with polish. Just stick a pin into the jets. There is four on each side! If it's not that, it sounds like a pipe has dropped off, and I would have thought should be picked up at MOT.
Airbag lights are quite common. It can be a loose connection, or it can be the airbag ECU. Needs a main dealer diagnostic check...
