Vacuum pump

Post by Dawie van Rensburg » 08 Apr 2018 15:01

Hi all. I need some advice on a vacuum pump oil leak. I noticed a leak on my td42 vacuum pump. I bought the 2 o rings from Nissan. I installed them but about after 5 min of ideling the motor i saw the oil is not leaking where the o rings is but on the pump itself. I asked Nissan if i can open the pump but they said No. Is this true? I heard that is posible to open them. If not does anybody know where i can get one? The one at Nissan is very expensive. Thanks.

There must be a way to open it up and replace a seal that must be leaking. The leak cannot be from much else... :think:
