  1. Oil leak rh plug resized.jpg I seem to have a slight oil leak from a sensor next to the coil pack/spark plug nearest drivers side anyone know what the sensor is, is it prone to leaking and is it just the bolt out and lift out to check o-ring etc.

    yeah, undo the the bolt holding the solenoid, remove solenoid, replace seal then do the bolt back up
     
  6. Thanks mate, I'll pop up the dealers and order that and have a look at the new megane 280 while I'm there.
