  • leaky oil filter

    found a large patch of oil in the garage today under my drivers side front wheel, examinations found it to be a leaky oil filter. Have had it tightened up a bit and been told to see how it goes, as it could have just needed tightening, but could also be faulty and need changing. Anyone else had a leaky oil filter on their astra before??

    Can sometimes happen if not tightened correctly / fault from factory, for all the price of a filter you could change it for piece of mind.

            think the filter must be faulty as its still leaking, need a new one asap.
