Folks went out on my RXP 2004 at the weekend, I had previously checked the state of my sc and it looked fine. Ohh how wrong I was.....

Anyway one of the sc washers went bang, these are metal ones put in by the previous owner......I have taken the engine out and recovered 3/4 of the smashed washer.

I would like to know if you can take the bottom part of the block off......this would make it a bit easier to recover the rest of the washer.
