    electronic oil level indicator

    Hi All,
    Well I just picked up a 2001 Polaris Virage 3 seater. Have had it for 2 weeks now. I have but 1 issue. I donít have the part manual yet but the old owner says itís on the way. Anyway the electronic oil level indicator [Idk if thatís the right part descripition] but this unit sits on top of the oil tank and have leads leading into the instrument panel [I think]. Well at certain times it leaks or just "pop's" out. Iíve noticed it at different times. I put a shop towel around it to absorb the oil that leaks out. It seems to only happen if itís ridden hard meaning jumping waves and such. also noticiced it after a wash down in the driveway had the trailer tongue lifted to drain and came back out about 30 minutes later to find it running down the tank and collecting inside. has anyone else had this issue?

    I just cleaned one up really well to get all the oil off and used some RTV silicone to reinstall it.

    Welcome

    I used a large gear clamp to gently tighten the plastic rim of the tank against the rubber fitting.
