    1.8T Sump Gasket

    Oil Pan Gasket 06A 103 609 C AUDI / SEAT / SKODA / VOLKSWAGEN



    Has anyone on here used one. I have to change the pickup on mine for piece of mind and didn't want to have troubles getting a good seal. This might work quite well? Looks like there's an OEM VW part number too.

    I thought it was just sealant, never seen a gasket for one...

    Yeh it is supposed to be sealent on there. But i think it should work just as well. all the bolt holes are all close together so its unlikly it would blow out or anything stupid

    I know the norm is to use sealant but I want a solution which is going to guarantee a non leaking sump! I've done a few before and they're always a pain with pure sealant. I'll give VW a bell in a bit and see what it costs and if they can get it...

    I agree with the above comment. I've done around 3 now with the Vag sealant. Works great

    Alright well I'll give it a go. I was just looking for an easy way out. I have bought the proper VW sealant (renzosil). I guess a standard bead around the inside of the bolt holes is enough then?

    Seeing as I was fititng a sump today I thought I would take a few pics to help out...

    Thin bead of sealant in the center of the flange going round the inside of the bolt holes...


    ...when bolted up the sealant will squeeze out... if you use too much then it will be doing the same on the inside as the outside... this could break off and float around the sump so make sure not too over do it...


    ...the two inner bolts on the gearbox side of the sump are a git to get too as they are offset from the access hole...


    I use a 5mm ball ended allen key (in this case a 3/8 rachet) to start the bolt in using a blob of grease on the end to prevent the bolt from falling off then do it up using a 1/4 wobble extension and 10mm socket as the 5mm allen key can round...


    ...and there we have one 'sealed' sump

    Awesome thanks for that mate. I'll be doing this soon to replace my pickup. It's been serviced very regularly but can't do any harm.

    I used Loctite Flange sealant when fitting my sump, Worked a treat and fitted a sump to a transit connect with the same stuff and worked great.

    Ill be dropping my sump shortly to change the pickup pipe and give it a good clean, very tempted to take it to a local metal fab to have it baffled.

    also snap-on do a lovely 6" long 5mm ball ended allen key (3/8"dr) which makes the two awekward bolts a doddle.

    Well this is made by Victor Reinz, the OE gasket manufacturer if I'm not mistaken? It says "approved for all european and japanese vehicles, eg. .... VAG" and it's the right stuff by the looks of it.

    Do you guys let it partially cure before for a few minutes or whack it straight on?

    straight on as said then i was told/read to leave it for 40 mins before adding the oil to allow the sealant to bed without coming in contact with the oil
