Default TU5JP4 oil leaks from filter housing

So, I've got some oil leaks from the filter housing on my 307.

The first (and more serious) leak is from where the housing meets the engine block. I see a seal kit is available for this, so will purchase and replace.

Does anyone know if I have to remove the exhaust down pipe to get access to the housing - or will an extra long spanner allow me to get the bolts out?

The second leak appears from near the oil pressure sensor. There is what looks like a blanking plate (with a hex fitting) just above the sensor and oil looks like it's leaking from here.

Is there a seal or washer that I need to replace here?

Just checked Service Box and a seal is available.

Part number: 0249 88

I'm going to remove the housing, clean it up and replace all the seals when I get time. That should sort it!

An update...

Replacing all the seals fixed the problem!

I did notice a few leaks with the new seals at first, but they cleared up after a couple of weeks. From what I read online this appears to be the norm.

Did you need to remove the exhaust or could you reach with a spanner?

The down pipe with cat. had to be removed.

Sounds tricky, but rather easy. Then you’ll have perfect access.
