T4 Post Icon Oil cooler bracket gasket orientation

2002 T4 2.5tdi ACV

Oil leak from oil cooler bracket.

Hi all, just going through the process illustrated so well by MISTERGRUMPY, massive BIG UP!! for that thread, great help.

As I was removing the bracket I was thinking to myself "make sure to check which way the gasket's orientated"

Bright spark that I am brain fart took control and now I'm cursing 'cos I don't know which way the new one goes DUH!!

One of the posts on the thread says that it's self evident but obviously I'm more of a brawn not brain type - I can make it fit in 4 different orientations!!
The gasket is identical to the one pictured in MISTERGRUMPY's thread with a gold stripe beside one of the stud holes.
The exploded parts drawing and MISTERGRUMPY both show it with the gold stripe facing out and on the NS of the engine.

Given that it's been such a PITA to get to I'm reluctant to put it all back together until I'm absolutely sure.

Any help much appreciated.

Have you got the right gasket? There are 2 types used depending on the model. Mine has a metal gasket and it goes in one way.

Thanks Indian,
As far as I know it's the right one, identical to the one that came off, got it from TPS so I'm hoping it's the real deal. I'll try and put some photos up.

There is a profile stamped on the metal gasket. Take out the bracket and check what works best. It fits only one way last time I checked.
