    Ive noticed a small amount of coolant loss over the last few weeks.

    Popped it into the garage and they're happy to take it in between keyworkers cars which is handy.

    Dye in the system, and its showing a leak of coolant from the bottom of bell housing, weird! i can only assume its getting into the bell. im hoping its from the coolant return pipe where the plastic pipes join from the matrix

    Anything else worth checking? Garage are removing the inspection panel today behind the intake and airbox to hopefully gain access to top of engine to view without removing intake
