    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 would use the vag part!

    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 **** 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
