    i sealed mine with a black silicone sump sealer i got from my local auto factors when my gasket went and it works a treat!!! i can see the point in certain audi parts an fluids like G12 and decent oil but as for sump sealant i dont see the point

    I have never had anything I have used Audi sealant on leak... ever!!! I personally would not use anything else... I have seen the results of using other sealants in the past (they say they are sump sealants) however they have always ended up leaking...

    If you want to be sure it won't leak, use the VAG stuff... if you fancy your chances to save a couple of quid then use something else...

    only use a small (2mm) bead on the sump when you do it as this stuff squishes out and if you can see it on the outside you can guaranty it will be the same on the inside...

    When going round the bolt holes, just go round the inside edge...

    Only 2 hours if your slow.

    Thing is with that Audi sealant is I'm sure it's good, but the principle of paying £25 for some sealant. So iv just always used loctite, never had a sump or rockercover leak from it, and done a fair few on cars and bikes. providing you clean up the area properly with degreaser, it won't leak. That's my experience anyway

    i have removed my sump pan and refitted twice. my advice would be to use the oem sealant. All mechanics i have spoken to said to pay the extra!
    My mate works for mitsubushi and the genuine sealant for the mitsi's is over £40!!

    also just to add; i have a cheap £38 sump from ebay. they may vary but the one i have is a great fit and same quality as oem. may be worth considering....

    The oil leverl sensor is a fair big sensor which is located in the bottom off the sump. On the drivers side of the sump iirc

    If you have no wires going to the sump at all, then your need the sump without a oil level sensor hole

    The ebay link I posted should be the right one for you.

    No one will know except you, look under your car and see if there is a sender in the recess on the bottom of the sump secured by 3 little bolts with a wire on it

    EIDT
    From the pic NO oil sender is fitted

    Thats not too bad. I was once driving a 306 and 1 car in front of me there was a truck with a skip on the back. A breeze block sized brick fell off the back of the truck, the car in front swerved but I didn't have enough time to react and hit it. It lifted the car up when I hit it and hit the rear of the car lifting that up too (this was all at 25mph so no loss of control). I gave a look when I got home and it had dented the sump but underneath it had split the oil pump pickup (part of the pump). It could be worse!
