i took my 2010 1.4tdci Mk7 in for it's third service recently and was told they had spotted an oil leak.  Apparently it's from a washer of some sort, but i've now been told it's in an inaccessible place and they'll need the car for 2-3 days as the "engine needs to be stripped down"


Any idea what part they might be referring to?  I've not seen any leaks under the car

Usual spots for oil-leaks.


Oilpan gasket

Crankshafts oilseal.



The only place there is a washer here is the drainplug, but that will NOT take 2-3 days to fix. More likely 15 minutes.

If they need to strip down the engine, Im guessing its the oil seal.
