Thanks v much for this useful thread!

I believe my slk is leaking as well and I sure hope it is the same issue as is identified here with this simple fix.

I noticed in another thread a user suggested to put some oil around the seal before inserting the replacement gasket... and in this thread it was mentioned the following:

Note:
The plug opening should free of grease or oil. No sealer should be used in the installation of the new plugs


Should I use some oil to help it seal better or just plug it in? Thoughts? Suggestions?

Thanks!
Sushi
