Default High Pressure Fuel Pump Leak?

I noticed this months ago but dismissed it.

If you take the plastic decorative cover off you can then see the high pressure fuel pump and other goodies. The high pressure pump looks like a silver dome like thing.

Where the line (has an orange little clip thing on the end) connects to the pump, there appears to be an oily residue coating the pump (the silver dome like thing). I wonder if this means my pump is leaking or something?

I'm taking the car in this Friday for a regular service and I'm going to mention it.

Anyone else able to take a look and describe what they see? Is yours perfectly clean without any residue or oily stuff?

Thanks!

Thanks man, I appreciate it. I hope there isn't something wrong with mine. It's all under warranty - but still.

Maybe it's just goo from the padding beneath the cover or something... Who knows.

Thanks man. Yours looks a lot shinier than mine, with no residue on the pump at all. Mine is kinda oily or something. Wonder where it's coming from.

Guess I'll still be mentioning this when I take the car in Friday. For ****s sake.

I know, you're right. But why would this be happening now? I find it hard to believe it's actually leaking.

Mine had the same oily residue, the oily substance never returned after cleaning the area with brake-cleaner (several months now). It may be some type of assembly lube. I was investigating a fuel odor when I noticed the oily film, the problem turned out to be a collapse PCV hose.

^^ +1 Probably some form of lube or protectant from assembly/shipping and it just attracted road grime.

Given the pressure the fuel is under, you would think any type of leak would be quite noticeable.
