    Engine oil leak

    Had an oil leak at the lower front right side of my 2013 TT engine. Turned out it was the crankshaft cover in which 2 bolts were finger tight and the rest needed tightening also. 14000 km so beware of that cover. I would assume they were torqued properly from factory but have loosened with gasket shrinkage. I was able to tighten these bolts without removing the lower fairing.  Knowing this can save you a trip to the dealer.

    I had the exact same issue and same location a couple of months ago, just snugged them up a bit and its been fine ever since. They were also surprisingly loose.

    Had the same.  I thought it was because the dealer had changed the cover (looks like it might have been dropped as a tester). But perhaps not.

    See below image.

    This is the procedure for tightening the Crankshaft Cover bolts,
    afte the cover has been completely removed.

    If just checking them for "tightness", then check them in the sequence shown,
    tightening any loose bolts to 11Nm.

    Note also that Bolt No.1 is "patch locked" and if it has been removed,
    it should ( according to the Service Manual ) be replaced.

    I am curious to know if the Explorer has the same issue with the same engine in a different bike?
