Re: Oil leak
I don't think there is a gasket, there's no mention of one in the workshop manual anyway. Speaking of that exhaust protection bracket - when I had my leak attended to, I had a look at the underneath of the car while it was on the lift (it was very clean once all the oil had been cleaned off!) and the mechanic pointed out that I didn't have that bracket. He said most of them had been removed because they were so low, and were often caught on speedbumps/kerbs thus causing damage to the sump which they are screwed onto. Maybe that's what happened with yours?
