Camshaft adjuster magnet and fastener torques.

The area around this was oily, dirty but not really wet. Anyway having looked at EPC and WIS I decided just to remove it and see if there was a gasket behind. There wasn't somewhat to my surprise, but neither was there much oil there. I'm assuming there is a seal somewhere inside the head which prevents oil escaping and pressures in the camshaft cover are not that high anyway. So I intend to just reassemble after cleaning up unless I should be doing something more complex. If anyone has the torque figures for the three fasteners I'd be grateful

just use rtv gasket maker and it will be fine. 20nm seems to be fine on alu. it will always leak without any gasket no matter how much you torque it.
