As has been pointed out in another reply, those silvery shards
are the first sign that the injector pump is on the way out.
You need to get it sorted out sooner rather than later. Your local
diesel specialist will do the job, price varies enourmously, but
it will be a lot cheaper now rather than when the cam ring breaks up.
Most specialists will replace the rollers with new softer metal
versions that seen to cure the problem (the originals were too
hard and rather than wearing started chipping - hence the shards).
