How's the gaiter over the gear stick? Ripped, loose?

Could be a cracked exhaust manifold, quite a common failure on early 2.5's.
Evidently it's a nightmare to diagnose due to it's location.

Sorry, partially ignore last post, I thought i was on the T5 section!
It's still worth checking for exhaust leaks around the manifold, turbo and down pipe flexi joint.
Also oil leaks onto the above parts.
