    Ask him what seal it is...

    If its the rear crank seal then it the engine will need to come out...

    I take it it was ok before you put it in for gearbox work, if so dig them up about it. I am not an expert but I recall something from an earlier thread. to do with seal and gearboxes. No doubt one of our more knowledgeable members will be able to help.

    Thumbs down

    Your not having much luck with this car bud.

    * What seal is it?

    * Its probable that this seal has been disturbed or related to your recent gearbox swap/ repair.

    Get a second opinion - even if your mechanic is VX trained - there may be an alternative to engine out...

    Sorry to hear that mate but just don't you come near my car, your bad luck on legs... At the rate you're going, you might as well have the engine over hauled first as last.

    It does sound like its been disturbed when they have ahd the box out. Its easier to take the box out to so it, rather than the engine.
