Opinion / Advise Cam Tower Seal

Fellow 944 owners.. My car has just turned 92K. It runs very well but has a very slight oil leak at the cam tower. Last spring the car had the h20 pump update, belts, tentioners and rollers but the oil leak wasn't correctly diagnosed by the mechanic until the job was completed.

1) Is it worth paying to have the car disassembled again for a very slight leak?

2) Are there any other repairs that should be considered during that repair while apart?

3) What other suggestions for maintainence does anyone have at 92K? (I'm considering inner & outer wheel bearings)


Thanks dudes..The car is in supreme condition, I'm considering buying a boxster or 80's series 911 but I'm not looking forward to selling my perfect 44 for 3k..

I thought I posted earlier??? weird...

anyways.....

If its the rear cork seal..........you can change it with the camtower on the car.

If its the front seals........... a small leak is ok as long as its not excessive ..... specfically in the timing belt area where the belts can be affected.......... thats a no-no

My biggest suggestion on repairs. Scheduled maintenance is a must............but NEVER fix the other things until they begin to show symptoms of replacing...... you can create a money pit in no time.

The leak is toward the windshield so I'm guessing it's the cork seal, any other information you can give me is appreciated thanks..
