    Thread: Oil pan torque specs.

    1. 12-10-2007 06:50 PM #1
      I cracked my oil pan this weekend and my insurance is saying it falls under collision and not comp ($400 deductible vs $100.)

      1st VW parts has a R32 oil pan online for sale for $161.93.

      I guess I'll be replacing the oil pan myself.

      What are the torque specs for the bolts on the oil pan?
      How about the three that hold the oil pan into the transmission?

      Any other advice?

      actually the pan that is $161.93 from 1stvwparts.com is not the correct one.

      make sure you look up this part #

      021103601L


      it is listed at $196.05

      i had the same issue and they shipped me the A3/S3 3.2L oil pan, slightly different that our oilpan.........

      Thanks for the heads up.
      They called me and let me know of this and then corrected the order..

      What torque specs did you use? Good and tight?

      You need the special sealant for the sump as well -

      D 176 501 A1 (the tube actually says "Loctite 5970 - 50ml")

      The 5mm allen head sump bolts are only 12 Nm

      The large gearbox bolts are 45 Nm

      Could you see what the difference was - was it just that the Audi one has the oil sensor hole in the bottom?

      It's not just the level sensor, it seems like it's not as deep as our oil pan.

      correct, it had "more" baffles incorporated into it. and the height of the pan was shorter.

      if one were inclined to try to use it the oil pick up would need replacing as well.

      like i said in a previous thread, i was gonna end up using it but because of $$$$ issues i don't have the time to mess around with it...
