I got no idea but mines f*** atm, needs to replace it soon, is it true thou that its near impossible for these to get repaired properly. Ive just been told by a few people that they will always leak. Even after they have been fixed. :shock:

Sorry not trying to hi-jack your thread :lol:

yes they are a full lip seal, from xf to AU (and I assume BA), to fix remove the motor and gearbox as one piece, sperate fix seal (do gearbox seals while at it) put back together and drop back in the car.

OR

drop gearbox, get p****d off trying to undo top bellhousing bolts, get gearbox on ground out of the way, remove rear seal in cramped tight space and replace, manage to get gearbox back in with lots of effort and swearing, then get top bellhousing bolts back in, forget the heater pipe bracket, then redo one bolt, tighten the rest.
