    Hello,

    Relatively new, I have a 91 200 tdi with about 160k. Recently, I’ve noticed oil weeping from the middle bolt and wanted to get someone’s thoughts. Thanks in advanced.

    Check it’s tight, or fit a new seal

    I did tighten it down but still weeps. I’ll have to try the new seal.

    Seals are super cheap on ebay, well worht changing the rocker gasket and the D seals as well, with the D seals you need a little sealant on the curved part otherwise it will weep.

    Thanks for the response! Would it be possible to get a link to these items. Having trouble finding D seals on ebay.

    Edit: never mind I found them. Again thank you!
