Mk7 Oil Leak

2 posts in this topic

Hi

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

cheers

Usual spots for oil-leaks.

Oilpan gasket

Crankshafts oilseal.

Drainplug.

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.
