    Vag specific sealant from tps £7 , it's brilliant. Done mine other week.

    Only use vag one!

    Yes, remember to let it dry and don't fill with oil straight away.

    i have listed part number and price for you. is it a job you want to do again?

    if not i would stick to vag parts mate, and as above let the sealant dry, i left it 48 hours before putting oil back in.

    let us know how you get on................

    I used the stuff he linked to, its what they sell at GFS. Worked a treat and smelt and looked exactly the same as the vag stuff i'd used before.

    Theres no need to wait 48 hours, i left it overnight but an hour would do i'm sure.

    The Elring stuff is now red instead of the white like OE, I have used it on my sump and so far is fine

    Did mine last saturday
    personally I'd use the original vw sealer as its more like putty than silicone, I waited about an hour before filling back up with oil and mines fine
    rather than clean the pick up pipe just get a new one as there only about £8 and I think you'd struggle to clean it properly as its a very small mesh and you may not get all the crap out!
    Take your time doing it as the bolts are slightly offset where the sump goes into the gear box so be carefull not to cross tread!

    Yeh I agree the vag one is more of a putty, much better in my opinion
