Y26SE Cam Cover Seals in one or two Pieces
« on: 27 March 2024, 17:19:26 »

Just opening the package of Victor Reinz 15-34268-02 to install cam cover seals. Is it really so that there are two separate seals for one cover. I remember when I removed the old one four weeks ago that it was in one piece, there was some kind of 'Bridge' that joint these two seals together in both ends, so are these OK??

From memory, I think it was the Elring ones that used to go hard very quickly, and leak prematurely...

Good to know about Erling, in my case they failed as the mayonese in breather blocked the system in -20 degrees. Victor Reinz was recommended somewhere here in OOF.
