    Afternoon All,

    Noticed a bit of an oil leak the other day (left the under tray for a day).

    On further inspection it is coming from the oil return pipe at the engine end between the pipe and the block, so not the pipe its self.

    I am going to be doing an oil change at the weekend, but just wanted to know if this could be a dodgy washer or is it worth replacing the whole pipe?

    And does anyone have any diagrams or know where i can get one from, just to make sure everything is as it should be once removed?

    Cheers

    Sounds like the copper washers are weeping a little, if it was me I'd get a pair of washers and a new banjo bolt from TPS and replace it
