    seat toledo 1.9tdi
    Hi Folks, hope some one can help.

    I have a seat Toledo with a vw 1.9tdi engine, this is a x reg so late 90s i think.

    I have cracked the sump pan and it is buggered, decided the best thing as i have a garage some tools and a pit is just to replace it myself, i live on a small island and no garage for a convenient distance.

    I ahve removed all the small 10mm bolts, one larger bolt and three large ones that slide in horizontally, the trouble is the sump pan just wont come loose.

    I am used to wokring on much older cars, where normally the sump pan comes off easially,

    I cant figure out what i have missed, but really need to get this fixed.

    If any one can offer any advice of any kind i would be extreamly greatfull, as currently very stuck indeed.

    If you're sure no bolts are on, gently knock it with a piece of wood and a hammer. It uses gasket maker so it'll be glued on a little bit.

    Did you get these hidden ones out?


    I used this, a 5mm ball ended allen key, did the trick


    If you have them out then yeh, hit it till it drops, it's not like it isn't busted already lol
