Replacing cam cover seals
« on: July 17, 2013, 08:24:22 PM »
I'm a lazy bugger. So I thought "why not find the easiest way to change these damn seals while removing/unplugging the least amount of stuff" Here is the way to do it on an RB20DET. An RB25 and 26 will be very similar

You will need just very basic tools, mainly:
*8,10,12 mm sockets
*Philips and flat head screwdrivers
*Flat faced pliers to remove hose clamps and pull/loosen hoses
No special tools are required at all.

Good work! You didn't feel an urge to paint the cam covers?

Thanks Bob!
Yes I did feel the urge, in purple. But I resisted. I will keep the engine bay looking as stock as possible :laugh:

Thanks man, there is a good write up on SAU but there is far too much work and no pics now. Involved things taking the throttle body off, taking screws off with magnetic screw drivers and all sorts and it isn't as detailed as mine.

Mine shows that you can remove/install the covers with all the screws in place and minimal removing of things. I even undid the phillips head screw under throttle body with just a small ratchet and extension, plenty of space to work with! :hawaii:


Also I'll update with where exactly to apply sealant.
