Hi, having a root around underneath as you do today Smile and noticed the following.

Think it's the oil pump, had heard of the cover rusting, as mine is (not leaking yet though I don't think) however a gasket lower down seems to be weeping, it a common failure/weak point?

Expensive fix? Parts labour - don't mind having ago myself but it looks as though access might be tricky - lots of pipes (with rusty unions!) - I wonder if they should be replaced also?

Car is a 997.1 Turbo, Tip with 33K on the clock

Have to admit ive not replaced one yet .

The cover is for the tandem pump and ive seen a lot worse than that .

Pump doesnt look too bad to remove but the 32 mm? oil pipe might be the only ackward part.

Part no.s here ..

Had this exact same issue with mine a couple of years ago. Got all the gaskets changed in the complete T/pump assembly under warranty. Everything's been bone dry since then. 👍🏼
