    Default Name that part....

    On the front right of the 2.2 DTi engine there appears to be hook shaped vent about an inch long. Any idea what this is??

    Cheers

    Find the oily bit above on the picture below!




    The larger pic shows the front of the engine on the left and the right hand side of engine on the right of the pic. The oil on there is old, possibly spilt during an oil change???? but its tacky not wet.

    Any ideas what this oily 'hook' type vent is?

    Its definately a vent of some sort, i had a feel underneath and its a rectangular hole about an inch or two long. I topped up my oil earlier and think i overfilled it slightly, this vent is now dripping very slowly (1 drop every 3 of 4 minutes) of new oil.

    Im suspecting its some kind of oil overflow but not sure, hence why im asking.
