    how to fix the oil leaks in the steering wheel tank.

    I had this problem of leakages in the steering wheel tank for Several months,


    so one day, I decided to change the filler cap, but is sold only in conjunction with the tank.

    My solution was to see what the problem was removing the tape to change the rubber O-ring




    O-ring was a bit distorted at one point,


    so I decided to clean it and reassemble it again.


    Since then, after 10000kms and nearly a year, I have not have problems with oil leakage.

    I have the same problem with my 9-5. I never thought of just replacing the rubber seal. Great idea!

    I got this idea when I was going to replace the rocket gasket in the Astra 2.t and I found the culprit was from the O-ring oil cap filler.
