Rear cam O-ring

RS blu

Recommended Posts

Hi to all, I would like to change my rear cam cover oring, someone did it.(near the turbo cover plate)
I think it is enough to remove the screws and remove the turbo cover and the circle cam cover, or do I have to pay attention to something else?
Do I have to put some grease or oil on the new orings?

This is a straightforward repair.

I THINK some folks used a sealer on new o rings, too. (Are we all afraid?  LOL)


It is always a good idea to use some sort of lubricant on newly fitted o-rings during assembly. Don't use anything that will affect rubber (petroleum based stuff is a no-no.)   This stuff in the link below is specifically for the process, but I just use a thin smear of Sil-Glyde.  I'm sure there is something similar in your locality.
