Oil Leak From Engine Steady Hole?
Posted 24 May 2012 - 08:34 PM
The car developed a n oil leak, which i thought must be from the gear linkage seal, the car had sat all winter.
I remember at my last MOT I was under the car and saw what i though was a bolt missing from the rear lower engine steady bracket. It did look a tad oily though.I totally disregarded this (stupidly) as I couldn't have dropped a bolt! I mean the bracket has never been touched.
Went to pick the car up today and was told i was indeed missing a bolt on the engine steady bracket.
Is that the right, can that case an oil leak?
If so you learn something new about these cars every day.
oh and god knows how the bolt has undone itself.

Are you sure it's not snapped off? Being a bolt holding a bracket, and subject to force on the engine rocking?
No as they just replaced it with a new bolt, they said maybe the spring washer hadnt been fitted previously (this i cannot confirm).
