whats is wrong with the oil pump. i had a leak which i thought was the sump gasket but it was a o ring on the oil pump housing which had gone. if its the same then its set timing, loosen timing belt. remove the other belts too. remove crank pully remove lower belt cover. remover oil pump, change oring which is a wierd shape then then tighten bolts back at 8Nm i think it was so it doesnt crush the new o ring. then put it all back.

hello mrbilly!
what a coincidence! i was working on this project a short while ago. i'm taking a break now.
you wrote: "if its the same then its set timing". what did you mean?
from my observation, i also concluded it was the O-ring inside the oil pump. but i bought the housing, which include the pump, the crank seal, all installed. i didn't want to take a chance by just replacing the O-ring, in case there are other issues with the housing.

sincerely
