    Default Oil leak - need some advice

    Hi all



    So my car was in the Vx dealer last week getting the oil level sensor replaced, which involved removing the sump.

    Got it back and when I moved it the next morning noticed a pool of oil about 3" across underneath. Took it back and they said they could see a leak that had come from the gearbox side of the sump however they ran the car for 30 mins and nothing more came out.

    Took the car again, same exact thing has happened.

    Anyone have any idea on this, what apparently seems a random leak and a possible cause? They have had the sump off so I am thinking they have incorrectly applied the gasket - I believe they use a liquid gasket on the sump?

    Any advice would be great as it's going back in in the morning!

    Take it back and let them keep it overnight until they see the leak
