Oil? Strange discovery under glove compartment





I don't know if you can tell from the picture but... As I was trying to find something, I noticed that there was some liquid that looked and felt like oil splattered under the glove compartment.

Blue box: you can pretty much see what I'm talking about because it is discolored. The dark half is the "oil" and the other half has not been damaged.

Red box: That whole dark part is all "oil"

Green box: Same as red box

Never seen this before and its making me paranoid. My car isn't going to explode during a drive is it?

If it was that, it wouldn't be a thick layer of oil... It's literally like engine oil on there...

If not that did you let anyone clean your car? Maybe residue from some kind of armorall or dash product

Just wipe it off and see if it reappears.

The blue box in particular has the characteristics of something being sprayed ie: looks like drops of something vs someone rubbing/wiping an oily substance on by random contact.

Or as stated, your significant other is leaking.
