    Along the same lines.

    Hi, Quick question if you dont mind.

    I have read up on how it is easy for this particular part to leak in the engine of my mk5 sport hatch, its the oil pressure switch.

    My question is, when this part is being replaced, is it the "back bit" with the bolt or the "front bit" (plastic clip) with green gromit and wire coming from it, or both? sorry for being vague.

    Hope the pic helps...

    as above i would say steam cleaner or just pure elbow grease

    and bit of a thread hijack above but you will need to undo the clip, undo the bolt at the end and it will come off thats will be what you need to replace

    Thank you, i didnt want to start a thread for something so silly, so i thought the word "oil" was along the same lines.

    I will delete my post.

    The problem is with this, it doesn't seem broken
    oil is dripping from right on the clip / gromit join.
    The plastic part doesnt seem cracked.
    I just hope replacing it does the trick.
