    i had a small leak on the bottom end oil seal picked up by the mech during a service, it stained the clutch plate so had new seal / clutch & modded dmf at the same time all under warranty, this was a costly job but as i wasn't paying i wasn't bothered tbh, then i was told about £1k worth of work

    Two common leaks on the cdti are, 1 from the bellhousing area thats the usually the rear crank/gearbox seal (not that bad but gets blown about making it look worse), 2 oil leaking from the turbo area thats usually just the jubilee clips around the LARGE pipes want tightening, be carefull not to overtighten and bust the clip, the oil comes from the engine breather system sucking it back in via the air inlet (very common not to worry) its designed to do that.

    A few months after buying my car and a few days after the "first" service I noticed a small oil leak that was dripping on to the engine under tray, although it wasn't dropping oil on the ground
    The oil sump gasket had failed, processed under warranty and included new oil
    The job only took them slightly longer than a standard oil and filter change, but I had to wait three hours before they would release the car back to me to ensure the sealant had hardened and was not leaking
    The cost would have been about £120, but that is for a 3.0 V6 CDTI requiring 8 litres of oil
