    Default Oil dipstick 'O' seal

    Has anyone had a oil leak from the bottom of the dipstick? had mines checked and was told i'd need to replace the 'o' seal,anyone else changed this? and was it a straight forward change?

    Yes I changed mine not so long ago as I seen a misty bit of oil on the sump. Turns out it was the oil return from the turbo. Had a split in the flex pipe.

    It's easy to change if I remember correctly there is a bolt on the manifold holding it all on.

    This is what i thought it was on mines but a friend had checked it and said to replace the o seal on the dipstick, was your split towards the bottom area where it returns into the sump?
