Cam cover seal leaking

Recommended Posts

I've got a 1999 TD5 110 which I have finally found the source of the oil leak on!! It's not the FPR as first thought but turns out to be the cam cover seal which I suspect is part number ERR7094G. However I need some help! Do I buy the genuine seal @ £26 or do I get the remake at about £9? Plus does anyone know what torque the fixing bolts should be re-fitted at?

Cheers....

It's quite a common problem for the TD5 cam cover seal to leak. I've even replaced with new and it's still leaked. What I do now is use the old seal if it's not damaged. Just clean up and then a thin film of RTV sealant cures it.

The old seal didn't have any obvious damage but I put it back with some red gasket sealant and was unsuccessful. Saying that it was an old tube of sealant so maybe I should try a new tube. Seems to be leaking from the rubber D to the rear of the block.

That's the place they all want to leak. I've not used genuine gaskets. Careful application of a good sealant and it's not leaking.

I have some from Halfords I think.. Grey stuff that is meant to be anti-burst and good for holding back the Oil.... If I get a sec I'll nip into the garage and have a look for you...

Just had a look on their website and they have a loctite one which looks about right. That's a job to purchase tomorrow. Thanks for the help

This is the one. The nozzle doesn't clog and has worked fine on loads of applications from diff casings to rocker cover.
