Citroen C4 VTS 2.0 16V - Oil leak from the crankshaft seal

Post by lancia58 »

Hi

I have an oil leak from the crankshaft oil seal ( the one at the flywheel side ). Oil seal part number is 012728. The seal has been replaced twice ( with genuine one ) but the oil continues to leak . Any idea what can cause this ?

Thanks

Are you using the correct fitting tool? I can only think it may be getting damaged on fitting if not using the correct mandrel to fit it, is it the older type radial lip seal with the spring in the back or the newer ptfe type seals? These normally come with the fitting tool.
