My son's Golf 1.4 is leaking oil from the rocker cover. I went to my local stealer to buy a new gasket. I was informed there is no gasket. I was told you use a tube of sealant. VW quoted me £46 for said tube[:O]

Has anyone used an alternative? Can anyone recommend an alternative?

Cheers troops[Y]

I have taken both the rocker cover and the head of my 1.4, to put the rocker cover back on I didn't use any special sealant or gasket. Just the same sealant used on the sump, high temperature stuff. Done plenty of miles on it since, works a treat.

Cheers chaz, I was thinking along the lines of sump sealant but wanted to see if anyone on here had done so!
