Hi

I have noticed a small leak which i think may be the sump gasket on my focus 1.6lx mk2 2006. Is it a diificult job to replace the gasket - can anyone describe the procedure?

Many thanks in advance!

I've cleaned the area tonight and tightened the sump bolts to see if that addresses the problem. It's only a very tiny amount of oil and i'm confident it's not coming down the side of the engine. I'll give it a couple of days and see if it's improved.
