300tdi bellhousing sealant???

Quick question I'm just about to bolt my r380 transmission back to the 300tdi engine and I'm curious if I need sealant between the bell housing and the flywheel housing. The workshop manuals says to use it when applicable.... What to do?

If you ever need to separate the two you will wish you didn't use any sealant. Just my own opinion but I don't live in snowy Canada.

I know Ashcroft recommends no sealant between the bell housing and transmission as it can cause shift problem. I'm wondering if there are any issues created about putting on these faces.

Separating would be a pain with it in certainly.

It is helpful for keeping water out when wading but obviously makes later separation difficult. What you can do is put a little oil on one surface and that will stop the silicone sticking but still let it seal.
