    Hi all, as a group of experts I thought I’d ask if anyone thinks this oil leak is worth worrying about or can be left as is. Is it an easy fix?

    picture attached.. Quite a lot of oil covering the pipe and area underneath.

    That's not a lot of oil in my book, :D I take it you've not owned a Defender?

    It might be worth identifying the source of the oil cheap, but it's not a leak worth loosing sleep over.

    Yeah just a slight bit of misting nothing to worry about. Wipe it clean & it won't come back for another 13 years :).

    As above wipe it clean, maybe spray a bit of carb cleaner on it a rub clean, then keep an eye on it to see how long it take to reappear, looks to be the power steering top hose to me, wonder when the pot was last changed and the fluid?

    It's the other end of that hose you should be more worried about as it can corrode and leak through pins holes.
