    That rubber seal should not be showing. You need to push it in as it isn't in all the way.

    It won’t push back in for some reason. I’ve tried draining the oil and giving it a push aswell still won’t go..

    Is that where the dipstick goes down into the sump? I changed the oil and filter on mine recently and cleaned all my sump up and that seal should definitely be further down. Can you not loosen off any clips or nuts/bolts and then try wiggling it back down.

    I don’t think that’s where the dipstick goes just by looking ( could well be wrong ) no amount of wiggling
    does the job though unfortunately

    Not too sure then mate. Might be worth a trip to a garage for a look but just keep your eye on your oil level in the meantime.

    That's the oil feed return off the turbo, mine weeped a little when it was new. Pop into the garage and get it looked at, hopefully if you have warranty you'll be grand.

    Got it all sorted today. As Sammy said it’s the oil feed pipe and it cost £140 to get sorted. hope nobody else has the same problem in the future.

    £140?! What they done to it? Bet they just shoved it back in and sealed it. Take it you have no warranty if you had to pay for it?

    unless they replaced the pipe that was an expensive fix.
    usually a bit of warm grease on the pipe and it pops in easily....never works if cold and dry as the sealing ring is too firm
