My ford galaxy tdci 2.0 WA06  is losing diesel underneath driver's seat

Blimmin? heck!

I?d maybe think about getting in touch with the fire brigade for some advice before that thing blows sky high. Hopefully it?s nowhere near at risk of any fire or explosion but leaking diesel surely isn?t a good thing and your safety here is paramount.

This needs to be sorted out very quickly!!

Please make sure you take all necessary precautions, a fuel leak is surely not a good thing and could be dangerous!
I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all. Always remember, a motor car is a serious tool and should be treated with respect. Put your safety first, always.

It?s not as dangerous as a petrol leak as it needs to be either atomised or reach very high temps to ignite.

Under drivers seat I would be looking at a joint in a pipe or it?s been damaged somehow as they are most likely plastic. Need to get under there and have a look
