Neoprene Washer on Drain Bolt (650L)

7 posts in this topic

Has anyone used a neoprene washer on the side oil drain bolt? I just put a new metal washer on because it was dripping very slow from the side drain bolt. After the new washer it is still dripping. Just wondering if anyone uses the blue neoprene washers?

Take the drain bolt with you to an autoparts store and get a washer. Neoprene is too soft and will tear under the bolt. There are two main kinds that are not metal. First is plastic, it's harder than neoprene. THe second is a fiber type. Either will work. Since they are softer than metal, they don't last forever. You have to replace them every 5 or so oil changes.
