It just makes the normal diesel type noises, nothing unusual. The fumes might be worse when stopped at lights. It is definitely worse with the fan on.

Hi there good morning to you

Thanks

Ok your fault is caused by combustion gases leaking past the injector sealing copper washer

This was a common occurance on the earlier 1.4&1.6 tdci Variants

This causes a strong carbon like smell inside the vehicle

I always advise replacing the 4 washers when doing this job as to prevent repeat repairs

If you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know and I will do my upmost to assist you

If you are satisfied with my answer /advice

Kindest regards ***** ***** and have a day

Any positive feedback / bonuses are kindly appreciated
