Default Cam Cover Plug Oil Leak


A Cam Plug, centre of picture between spark plugs.
I have oil weeping from the cam cover plugs ( sometimes called 'Lids' I think).
Looked at the Workshop manual and showed, plug, O ring, & Circlip. So, probably need to replace the O ring, (17mm * 2.5mm, Part No 900 174 056 40).
A stupid question : how are these cam plugs removed? Just pull out?

You are correct, the plugs just pull out. However, they pull out AFTER you remove the cam cover from the cylinder head and remove the snap ring from the back side of the plug.

If you are going to do one, do both.

Thanks -- how could I assume that it would be a simple pull out !
