Hi, though I'm not an expert I believe that leaking injector seals are a well known failure mode for all PD engines, including 1.9s:
I know people have got away with this; it's easy to get to so I'd guess at perhaps a couple of hundred quid it would be worth the gamble...
And whilst a tech was doing it they could check for wear spots on the cam, which would probably be the first item to go due to oil dilution.


Good luck.
