'99 2.5 TDI V6 Replacing valve cover gasket - advice sought please
The helpful chaps at TC Garage in Sussex have diagnosed an oil leak at the offside rocker cover gasket on my '99 2.5 TDI (V6). I don't have time to lose the car for a day while they do it, so I've bought the kit from them and want to try it myself.
Has anybody got any advice on this job? I bought a rubber cover gasket from them plus something that looks like a rubber-coated core plug. I'm not sure where this core plug fits, but the cover gasket has a half-round section moulded into each end that might mate with this rubber plug. Maybe it's obvious when I get the cover and old gasket off, but I'd be really grateful if anybody's got any advice before I start the job.
Should I use any Hylomar-type sealant with the gasket, or just fit it dry?
Thanks in advance,
