I took my car in for an oil pressure test today. Unfortunately when my mechanic screwed his pressure testing machinery into the upper oil pan sensor hole he cracked the housing. Has this happened to anybody else before? And is it going to be a big job to replace? The garage have been very honest and taken responsibility. They even said that the work done to replace or repair could be done at same time as my front  Gallery gasket to reduce labour. 

 

Anyone had any Experience of this problem, or any advice I could pass on to my mechanics?

Yes, heard of this before and is caused by overtightening the pressure gauge.

I have sold quite a few mid sumps to forum members who have cracked their sumps with overtightening the actual oil pressure sender switch.

How much is the part mate?

Gallery gasket job would suggest HR.....

Possibly but not necessarily.

 

Gallery gaskets do fail on the DE however not nearly so common as on the HR.

 

Just trying to be clear so that I price up the correct part. :)
