    hey. i noticed on my kombi today this black liquid coming out of the middle of the rear quater and my rear side panel. i have no idea what it is. or where it is coming from, its also dripping down and splashing onto my brand new paint :(
    does anyone know what it could be or where i should look. i cant see anything from in the engine bay but will have a better look tomorrow.
    here is a pic i just took see the black oily stuff in the middle there :/

    think i have found what it is, someone has put some tar stuff under where the battery and some rag looking thing, i got no idea what has happened there in the past. but at least now i know what it is an shouldnt wreck my paint.

    Hard to tell conclusively ,but I have similar looking ooze from rear left hand side staining mud flap , turns out to be rust proofing / fish oil over kill ! Me to blame .
    Perhaps same ?

    yep i think your right, mine is the same, it seems to ooze out once the engine bay is warm, must heat up an run out. not a major issue... i dont think haha
