    Just spent my sat replacing a niggling oil leak in the rocker cover as it had degreded to nothing. Finally got it back together and it seems to be holding well...but... there is also a leak under the cam sensor that i didnt notice before. What seal could be gone there and is it a hard fix? Thanks in advance.

    Sounds like your Inlet camshaft oil seal mate.
    I know Audi use a 'Special' tool (don't they always...) for this repair.

    Basically the Hall sender is removed, a seal extractor is screwed in and the seal removed, a guide is attached, the new seal is pressed in and put it all back together.

    Not too big a job providing you have the tools.

    Thanks for the info
    You have got to love Audi and their special tools!!! I def dont have them anyway, would it be hard to buy them or mock one up. Might just give it to the garage, save the hassle!
