  • Oil cooler conection leak

    Had a very small leak from the banjo conection on the oil cooler. When I unscrewed the hollow bolt I only found a sealing washer on the bottom, and according to the manual there should be one on both sides. Is it possible that the top washer is still stuck in the oil cooler and needs prying out. I can't see anything obvious. Has anyone had this problem?

    Its possible, as they're crush washers.

    You should be able to see it if its there.
    for the minimal cost you may as well just use new ones anyway.

      If its there it will be slightly proud of the housing . if not there will be a step down.

      It never ceases to amaze why people ask for advice then when I give it they either ignore it or argue against it.
      But then I don't know all that much about TL's

      wwjd.......what would jimmy do.

          There is definately a step down so will assume its not there and fit 2 new ones.
