Another Oil Cooler pipe leak!
Better half drove car into the garage leaving a trail of oil. Front right tyre was covered in oil which was coming from the bottom of the oil cooler. Looks like its the usual corrosion problem. Hate to think what would have happened if the leak had occurred 5 minutes earlier when she had been on the motorway. Oil on the tyre isn't conducive to good braking! Car is a 2008 (same as in a similar thread) so just out of warranty. Going to contact Alfa to see if they will contribute to cost of repair but if it turns out to be corrosion, suspect they will say no. Seems to be a fairly common problem, at least in UK, which raises doubts about the quality of the original part.
