    Oil Leak - Location Known Object Unknown

    OK I've worked twice with the dealership now to identify and fix an oil leak... the image attached shows the leak. It appears to be leaking directly from the bolt location. Last week they replaced the turbo banjo bolt saying that was it, but the leak is still there! I didn't know enough to say this was or was not the banjo bolt... so can anyone identify this bolt/nut?

    No labels on the image but I think its clear where we're lookin'.

    Thanks in advance in my frustrated state.

    Thanks for the feedback... the magnitude of the leak did not change after they replaced the banjo bolt so I suspect you're right... stealership is looking at it now so we'll see what they come up with this time.
