Seal with pictures

Recommended Posts

Hello guys- I have a 99 C2 and on the drivers side vale cover, where it says Vario Cam, there is a sensor. My seal around that sensor weeps oil a bit. I am looking at replacing the cover piece around that sensor, part # 996-105-223-52. As you can see the cover only has two bolts, but before I start unscrewing them, I would like some advice. MY FIRST QUESTION IS WILL OIL POUR OUT WHEN I UNSCREW THE BOLTS, AND DO I HAVE TO DISCONNECT THE WIRE FROM ITS CONNECTOR? (FOLLOWING THE WIRE, THE CONNECTION POINT IS FAR UP IN THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT AND VERY DIFFICULT IF NOT IMPOSSIBLE TO REACH.) ANY ADVICE WOULD BE APPRECIATED. THANKS

Oil will not pour out and the connector will have to be disconnected. It is possible to disconnect from under the car. just follow the wire up to the connector past a fastener to the chassis. if I remember right its a narrow connector that releases from the top of the connector....Be patient <_<

should be a 10 min job once the car is on jacks

Thanks for your advice. I did find the connection point and it does release from the top.
