    Default Engine cover removal - 207 gti

    Hi all,

    I am wanting to have a look under the engine cover (in the attached pic, the cover with the Peugeot logo on it - ignore the red arrow).

    Is this easy to remove...I can't seem to see a 'trick' or fasteners that need undoing?

    Sorry for the really newb question...

    The silver bit is held on with two pin like clips in the centre, the rocker cover/valve cover is the ten mm bolts allthevway around. The square housing is sealed don5 pull it off like i did on mine to attach a catch can hose on the outlet to the left it breaks the seal in the underneath were you cant see. You will have oil pouring out everywere when ypu drive as you gotta get gasket seal yo reseal. Hope that makes sense.....

    Don't even try. It is the oil separator, and is integral with the full head cover. Underneath it looks like this-

    Since you are curious, it works like this -
    Pressurised oil and coolant passages are in red and blue;
    Rising blow-by is in the green ducts;
    Falling oil, from the separator and the camshafts is orange.

    The interior of the separator looks like this Engine cover removal - 207 gti-deshuileur.jpg

    Just for completeness sake, is there a seal or gasket to worry about on re-fitting, or does it use a liquid sealant?

    You guys are champs - thanks for all the info.

    The reason I asked is I seem to be getting a very small amount of oil 'weep' appearing around the spark plug holes to the right (the right-most hole has the most, and it seems to be making its way to the left).

    It really only started after I fitted the induction, so my first thought was the pcv pipe that runs to the air intake might not be sealing properly (it does come off rather easily), and as the pipe now sort of goes up and then down to the intake, any oil in this pipe runs back down to the pcv, but now can 'sneak' between the pipe and the pcv outlet and onto the cover (does this make sense?).

    Is this feasible? If so, would a new pipe fix it (I will put new pipes on when I put on the catch can)?

    Could there be some other reason?

    Thanks again.

    The induction doesn't carry vapour from the inlet until just before the turbo, and it drains to the turbo. The pic shows the seal around the spark plug hole. Perhaps there is now pressure from blow by helping some seepage.

    The standard THP engine has no obstruction to incoming air, it's rather noisy as a result, with a very large air filter.
