Hi , my jaguar has a sanden SD7H15 compressor fitted and has a oil leak from the front of the compressor. I have removed the unit and removed the clutch and pulley to see where the oil came from. the front shaft seal is perfect and i found that the leak is from the front nose / plate assy where it joins the crank case. I removed the front plate assy and found the cause is a large rubber O ring that has stretched to a larger size. The SANDEN manual does not give any info on this O ring replacement only the HEAD end of the compressor. The seal looks easy to replace but do not know what totque the front bolts should be set to. Also other than damage people may cause inside these compressors does any one know why they do not give details of replacing this large O ring ? . The inside of the compressor looks fine so would think a new seal would last ? Any members got any info / advice on torque of front bolts etc. Thanks for all your help in advance.
The manual says this...
Pinching or extrusion of front housing O-ring Ã¢ÂÂ non-repairable.
Why does it say this as i have been able to order a seal set for this compressor but could be made by a aftermarket supplier but says its OEM Quality .
So i have no idea why it says that and also no Torque settings. I understand the O-ring can not be repaired but why not replaced ?
Somneone should sell an o-ring kit in the UK.
TRB....whatch doing up so late???????
