Oil Leak - side of the engine, near the timing cover
« on: August 15, 2020, 01:46:45 pm »
Anyone had a leak from this location before, how much to fix it? I think this thing is called a magnetic cam adjuster?

MK6 GTI EA888

Right now the leak isn't too bad - if I let the car stand for a few days I'll get a couple drops on the ground and I haven't yet had to top up the oil between services - but there is oil coming out and down the side

More likely to be from the upper chain cover gasket in the cover.
Not able separately only comes with new cover and perimeter gasket.
