    Bad oil leak

    Hi guys, I have a 2011 manual 3l CRD. I've just noticed there's an oil leak which I suspect started last night or this morning, but it has emptied out almost all the oil. Any ideas what it might be from? Thanks

    Is that the harmonic balancer? Front main seal?

    I'm not 100% sure, it's just been gushing out since around this morning

    It's a little hard to see what's going on, and I'm not used to looking at the 3l.. But looks like it's all coming from around the balancer.

    Pop over and introduce yourself and I'm sure someone with a bit more knowledge than me will come along and help you out.
