I'm not sure what correct name for this area, tried a search, but not successful. Any how bought the seals at stealership, but they didn't have o rings, & claimed their shop never replaces them.:confused:. Scarey! I'm bummed, hate to go thru all the trouble & then still have a drip due to a little cheap skinny oring. Has anybody done job with old o-ring successful? I dont like gambling! BTW I try to put key words in title so next person in search can find easier.

I always replace them. They are usually pretty flat. If I had to reuse them I would apply some 518/anearobic sealant to the old one. They aren't typically the source of the leak so I beleive it if the dealer says they don't replace them.
