oil leak


Recommended Posts

It could be the drive flange gasket behind these 5 x 17mm bolts, or perhaps the oil is coming out of the hub cap itself.

To get at the gaslet - remove the hub cap, remove the circlip and shims, then undo the bolts and the flange will come off.

A new gasket is about 10p

Hi Les,

On my vehicle the whole of the drive flange is wet with oil and the hub cap itself is saturated although it's not yet contaminated the brake drum. Is this still likely to be the gasket or something more tricky. Don't want to start something I can't see through!

cheers,

Simon
