I just got my Astra H 1.6 61k 04 back from its service. And in the notes for the service it says, "Slight oil leak from front crankshaft oil seal."
I queried it at the garage and they said it would be a timing belt job to solve and I should keep an eye on it.
The mechanic said it was moist, no not a major problem at the moment.
How long will it be until this is a big problem and will it cost much if they are replacing the timing belt? - Would it take a mechanic much more time/parts to solve this problem if they were also replacing the timing belt. It is not supposed to be done until 100k.
Also, i asked for the brakes to be replaced but the new pads did not come with the wire to stop the "Brake Pad" warning. They said they have ordered one in and it will be £18, is that expensive?
