Had our lovely CMax serviced 10 days ago and reported there was a smell of diesel in the car. The Ford dealership said the fuel leak off pipe was damaged and needed replacing (150+).
Driving today, the smell of diesel inside returned and, when we were standing in traffic, there were fumes/smoke coming from the vents by the windscreen and the radiator grill.
I'll be speaking to the garage when it reopens on Monday but do any of you guys have an idea what might have gone wrong? Would you still drive the car? I am inclined not to.
I am, quite obviously, rubbish at cars.
Many thanks for any help you can give.

I think you perhaps have a loose pipe to one of the injectors
