Hi guys i have got a 1999 1.6 Megane RT, covered 70,000 miles and has just developed an oil leak, It started cause I noticed some light smoke from under the bonnet when at some traffic lights.
Looked under the bonnet and could smell oil, it seems to be leaking onto the exhaust just where it curves under the engine. But I cant find out where its coming from any ideas?

Cheers

take the heat shield off, it will give you a better idea, as the shield pretty much obscures everything. it's only 3 10mm bolts.

hello m8 just to let you know my megane was doing the same stunk of burning oil even came through the vents. took the heat shield off and there was oil leeking from the head gasket seal. so got the head gasket replaced and all seems to be fine
