Hello,

she has about 95k miles and leaks some oil on the passenger side. what procedure do I need to do with this? I searched and not much info. I don't seem to find an gasket for this, it seems to be pointing to RTV adhesives.

I will be doing the job once the oil change is due. in 8k miles that is. it is a slow leak.... for now.

The day after I got my Passat (CVCA ~73K miles at the time) I saw a little bit of oil on my driveway. I brought the car back to the dealer who said this is a common issue with dieselgate buy backs that sat around for a while. I just checked my records and it says:
"CUSTOMER STATES OIL LEAKING FROM VEHICLE. NOTICED ON DRIVE TECH FOUND OIL PAN LEAKING REMOVED OIL PAN. RESEALED OIL PAN REFILLED WITH OIL"
The part number listed for the repair is D-176-501-A1 which is listed as Upper Oil Pan Sealer

I had to do the same on my 2015 at 40k miles. People here said it most likely was something else leaking like the cam seal but my leak was fixed just doing the pan reseal. Easy job but I have a two post lift. The key is to use the factory sealant and make sure there is absolutely no oil contamination on the sealing surfaces. I left the car on the lift for a day or two with the pan off to make sure there was no more oil dripping out to get on the sealing surfaces.
