Does anyone have a clue if it’s something important that’s fallen off!
Looks like a camshaft end seal to me , have you changed the cam cover gasket recently ?
Ah ha! Thanks for the pointer.
The gasket was changed in January - and it has two seals in place.
Who knows where this one has come from then.
Perhaps it’s one of those pieces lost and have finally fallen through all the nooks and crannies!
