    rocket cover gasket

    i found that my rocket cover gasket is leaking oil. where is the best place to find a replacement (in the UK).

    how much should i expect to pay?

    is it an easy install?

    Not hard to replace, just a couple of bolts, you might as well replace them with some shiney glen yale ones too. hardest bit is getting the gasket lined up correctly before you tighten it all down. Just make sure that when you tighten the bolts that you tighten them in an order so that they as far away as possible, so if they were 1 2 3 4 then 5 6 7 8 underneath, that you hand tighten them all then fully tighten number 1, then number 8, then number 5 and so on. Regards the actual gasket give autovaux a call, be much cheaper than vaux and genuine part.

    iirc they r same as xev,and can be a ba5tard,most garages tend to use silicone,as on the xev there were a b1tch for leaking. but as matt says do them in order and dont overtighten as u could pinch the gasket and bugger it.
    best buy genuine vaux,i went through 3 3rd party ones in a yr
