Hello RCZ'ers,
Now I'm not sure whether this is a fault or if I'm just being Paranoid ?

I have seen this - well every-time I open my bonnet, and I'm wondering does everyone who has a RCZ experience this or have I got some kind of leak?

I seem to get some kind of spray all over my air filter housing - like this in fact ;-

Does anyone else get this splash back in this area or have I an issue ( with the car not my Paranoia - lol )

Cheers n Beers y'awl

Mine doesn’t suffer from that problem could be an R thing but doubt it. What does it look like? Road grime?

Sound - cheers Pete !

Puts my mind at rest, couldn't remember if I got it on the GT, but it's there everytime I open my bonnet.

Least I know it's nothing to worry about, I'll give it a clean, been wanting to do the engine area ever since I saw Neil's efforts on his misses Mini.

Thanks Again :thumbup:

One day when it stops then you know the insulation on the turbo heat shield is gone. And most probably you'd need a new shield. Been there, done that :beer:

It’s normal for the R so you are not being paranoid.

Hi, you think you've got problems, I have cats living on top of the engine of both of my cars. I first noticed a furry engine cover on my Freelander, then on the RCZ. I'd love to know how they get onto the RCZ engine, the LR engine has quite a lot of room round it, so not too big a problem. Anyone else had this problem on a car that is so well packed in? Dave
