View Full Version : Rear Main Seal Gasket?

Long story short replacing the rear main seal, ordered the plate for german and it arrived. My question is there a Paper gasket too that is used or is it thin rubber on the back of the plate the only gasket. Thanks

It's a rubber seal...

mine came with a paper gasket that goes behind the metal piece.

I bought the paper seal for mine, but didn't use it, the rubber seal seems to work fine. I've got 10k miles on it.

I have done it both ways without issue. IMO, I would install the paper along with the seal.
