Leon FR TRI Oil Leak


Full Member
Oct 25, 2004
Had my car serviced today and the mechanic noticed an oil leak from what looks like a vacuum unit above the alternator right by the top of the engine. There was a small amount of oil around the pipes and some which had leaked onto the alternator. There is no warning lights etc.

It wasnt at Seat, just a local servicing garage.

Ive got a pic, just need to find somewhere to upload it to.



Same Problem

Ive got the same problem with my Leon FR at the moment. Was it an expensive repair in the end? Possible DIY job?
