2.0 TS Balancer Shaft "Blind End" Leaks
I like to address root causes when repairing, not symptoms.
Are the blind end leaks, simply ageing of the rubber coating surrounding the steel plug, or is there typically a deeper reason for these caps to weep, like excessive endplay in a shaft?
Any other "gotchas" for the replacement process? Is it one of those applications where you can only expect success with careful use of Threebond 1211?
