Oil Filter Cover Gasket Leak

Post  Mauser on Wed May 07, 2014 8:27 pm

As topic, I changed the oil today and there is a slight weep from the cover ?, bolts are tight enough and I don't want to over tighten them, question is does the gasket fail ?, not seen anyone post on here with similar problem but maybe someone can advise ?...cheap to replace 11335-MBN-670 £4 from dealership for the rubber  Bump

I have heard of this before , if you look in the service manual it tells you to replace the rubber gasket for the cover for a new one everytime you change oil , that is a little bit excessive as i am still using  my original seal , but if it starts leaking get a new one simple and cheap to do . BRP smile

Grease the O-ring and re-assemble, that should stop it.

Unless the O-ring has been damaged upon installation..
