Purchase Information

Availability: in stock


Essential for prolonging the life of all T2 engines,. Ensures that hot air cannot rise from the exhaust and cause the engine to run hot. Fits all VW T2 Bays from 1972 to 1979. Can also be used as an alternative for aircooled T25s.

When fitting, ensure that the smooth side of the seal is downmost; that the joint is not near the cooling fan.
The engine compartment in an air-cooled VW is designed as a closed system which keeps air flowing over those parts of the engine which get hot. As these engines run quite close to their temperature limit anyway, there is very little room for manoeuvre.
This seal not only keeps out road dirt from the engine, but prevents hot exhaust air being sucked into the engine compartment which reduces the air-cooling effect. When this happens, the unit runs hotter, increasing wear and reducing engine life. Don’t skimp on this important item – regularly check the condition of your seal, as they break up as they become old and allow hot air to rise.

  • Perfect Fit

    The biggie is " Dark Side Down" when installing or the foam wrinkles on the softer sponge side. So I installed Dark Side Down and it gave a smooth, neat finish The length was perfect - I didn't pull it tight as I knew it would shrink and the ends matched to the millimetre. A necessary part of the engine installation as it maintains a slight positive pressure in the engine bay while moving, aiding the airflow to the fan and the engine cooling. Without it and spark plug seals 125c in traffic on a 25c day-oil temp in traffic and road to 90KMH, with both installed, it lowered oil temp to 110C at 90 and 25c. a good improvement.

  • Perfect Fit

    For those who have had failures above- The biggie is Dark Side Down , the softer foam side wrinkles when installed. Yes this IS the correct shape when installed DARK SIDE DOWN and looks great. I did not pull on or install the foam tightly as I assume it would shrink, the ends matched perfectly to the millimetre when installed. With no alt seal, engine bay seal or spark plug seal , on 25-29c days I was getting 125c oil temp at 90kmh. With the 3 seals now in place, I have lowered the oil temp to 110 C a big improvement. This seal is necessary to aid the fan function as it increases air pressure in the top engine bay while on the move. Great product.
