Hi, my first post.

For about a week there has been a very bad smell (like exhaust fumes) in the cabin of my 1.6 TDi. Today I did a check & found that around #1 injector was a pool of oil which seems to be the cause of the smell.

Any ideas as to what's caused the leak & easy fix or garage job.

Thank in advance.

Sounds like the seal has gone around the injector.

Are you sure its oil? and not fuel?

Thanks Steve, it is oil - no drop off in performance & mpg still pretty good.

Fumes getting into the cabin is like exhaust fumes.

You were spot on Steve, #1 Injector seal had blown - cost me £108 for new seal & fitting, mechanic said carbon build up was terrible.
