      I couldn't find the specs for the torque on the crank seal housing and other main oil seal housings in my Bentley so I was wondering if there is a specific torque our just tighten them as tight as I can with thread lock on the bolts? Let me know!

      Interesting the A2 manual doesnt seem to have specs for them either.

      Small bolts so good and snug with loctite is probably fine. Dont go too hard they will break easily.

      10 newtonmeters or 87inch pounds.

      from memory. just did it recently. was in my scirocco bentley. can't guarantee my short term memory but the long term still seems to work.

      i can update directly from the manual in a few hours to confirm those.
      i think they are called oil seal carriers.

      Install the new seal, lubricated with clean engine oil, with the lip on the inside and the closed side facing out. Fit the seal into position, and carefully drive it into place until it is fully seated in the seal carrier. Use care not to distort the seal as it is installed. For best results, use a seal driver such as Volkswagen special tool no. 3083, shown in Fig. 6-2. If reinstalling the seal carrier, torque the top three bolts to 10 Nm (87 in. lb.) and all other bolts to 20 Nm (15 ft. lb.).
