    Default Is this normal?

    I took this cover off today as im thinking of colour coding it Ultra Blue.
    Underneath there is traces of oil (should have taken a pic I know).
    Is it normal or something I need to check out?

    Depends where the traces are coming from and how much. If split when topping up the oil I would not worry but anywhere else I would sort it. An idea or pic of where it is coming from would help.

    Not sure how oil would get in there topping up?
    The cover is sealed as it has air circulating underneath.

    You would be surprised where people manage to get oil when refilling.

    Vehicle : Facelift Insignia/Corsa D

    Trim : LE/VXR

    Engine : 2.0 cdti/1.6 Turbo

    I'd recon it's more likely to be oil that's come from the breather pipe attached to the inlet pipe. If it's just traces the it would be nothing to worry about
