Hi all,
My Golf (1999) has around 300K already, and there appears a leakage from under the timing cover. My guess is that's it about the engine crankshaft seal (https://www.carid.com/engine-crankshaft-seals/ ). But wanted to ask you guys what else may've caused such a leak? As when I start dealing with it, I want to consider everything not to get stuck during the repair process having to buy something...
Because nothing else except of the crank seal comes to my mind.

If you don't get any help here you can try the Dubberz forum or the Vortex forum. Are you wanting a 'how-to' or more of a parts list ?

I would rather do it by myself. So advice on what parts are fine and which should be avoided is ok, but I would appreciate details on how to have the job done. As I am planning to replace that crankshaft seal by myself. Just wanted some advice from someone who did it on this type of VW...
Anyways, I appreciate your help guys and will try out the Vortex forum you gave me
Cool Idea
