Forum rules


When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.


Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Understand I have to use the washer for the 9000 but not on the 9-5. Do I press it in or gently hammer/drift it? concave side facing out or the rubber side with the writing on? De-grease the hole before insertion?

Thanks - cardboardcutout

Remove the cam cover and unscrew the security Torx screws holding the cap on top of the plug. Then replace the plug and refit the cap and the cam cover.

The concave side of the plug should face the outside world.

Ah, reading into this can the plug perish and cause a leak?

The plug itself, being steel, doesn't perish but it seems the rubber coating compresses and allows oil to leak past. It's a very common problem and we've sold a bucket-load of them.

I've realised the plug on the B202 is different, but a very similar size, to anyones knowledge (Billj hint hint) will the later plug seal the hole, or should i get the properone?

The plug on the B202 has an O-ring, which is all you will need to replace. It is held in place with the clamp that would secure the distributor on non-turbo models and I think it can probably be removed and refitted without removing the cam-cover.

The cam cover does need to be removed to get to the clamp. The clamp is held in by the security type torx bolts.
I'll do a head bolt re torque while the cover is off.
