Had my 130PD in for service and oil change recently but when the sump plug was taken out some of the thread came out with it . Sure enough its developed a leak and now slowly loses oil over a period of weeks. Easy solution would be to fit a new sump but thats a couple of hundred quid. Does anyone know if its possible to helicoil the thread or is the metal too thin?

Failing that if I wanted to get a second hand sump does anyone know if all MK1V sumps are the same for diesel versions?

Any wisdom on this appreciated.

So, is it possible to helicoil this thread - have you done it youself? The guy I use to do my servicing wasn't sure it was feasible so that's why I'm raising the topic.

Cheers for your help.
