    jack car up
    bottom engine cover off
    drivers side wheel off
    hub nut off
    driveshaft and intermidiate shaft off plug where it goes into gearbox so you dont lose gearbox oil
    exhaust frontpipe off
    couple of wiring connectors off at rear of sump
    dipstick out
    undo sump nuts
    i used pry points at front of sump and gearbox to split seal on sump

    put new oil pickup seal on clean all mating faces 3mm bead of rtv
    put it all back together !

    I created this DIY how-to video for the oil pickup gasket replacement.
    This should make it more straightforward for those who want to DIY the oil pickup gasket.
    Not a hard DIY.

    Does any extra work need to be carried out prior to accessing the sump ie removing subframe or anything? Also, if cutouts have been made previously, will they be visible from under the car? I have just bought a 2010 (59 plate) 2.0 cdti and am receiving this error message on first start up. Garage quoted me between 7.5 And 10 hours labour so not gonna be a cheap job.

    Hello,

    My car didnít yet had the low-pressure warning.

    I let my garage sort it out as a precaution and due to my car doesnít have the precut holes in gearbox.

    Total cost: 7000 SEK, about 600 GBP

    Insignia Bi-Turbo 2012, F40 manual gearbox
    11 4000km, about 70 000miles


    Regards
    Niklas

    I often wondered why the drive shaft had to come out but now you say it’s possible without taking it off i might look at doing this myself

    Does anyone know if the warning still returns despite changing the seal? Need to get mine done but am wondering if this solves it entirely or itís just a temporary fix.

    Might want to start a new post about your problem and it helps also if you introduce yourself and let people know some details about your car etc-------Dave

    Check the oil for specs of metal also the bottom of the inside of the sump and strainer.
    You could have the end caps removed and inspected for signs of wear
