    I live in teesside and was wondering where is the best place to buy a crankcase breather filter from. I have a small oil leak (about size of 50p) every morning after ive used the car. There is no obvious place I can see it comimg from. Ive googled and looked on ebay but cant find it. My car is a 2000 a6 2.5tdi quattro. Any pointers to where to get one would be wundebar.

    I endedup not buying new filter. Instead I removed old filter and cleaned it in petrol left it to dry out, cleaned up a treat. When it came out it was coated in a thicker than usual oil, posibly old emulsified oil. I then fitted it back in. Will report back to see if it has helped in reducing oil leaks

    You should have used a cutter and remove it completely.

    Usually i replace the cotton gauze type with the later- venturi type- as fitted to the later AKE 2001 onwards engines ! Never bother with clogging anymore...

    Well it seems to have cured the oil leak, mostly. It leaves a tiny spot if parked up all day. It has helped cleaning up the old filter but not cured the problem.

    Chris have you got a part number for the Venturi type? Will that go straight on a AYM?
    how often should it be changed?
    Cheers.

    Nope, used to have one but cannot find it at the moment ! Basically if you give them a reg from a v6 tdi 180Bhp they should be able to get you the breather, it's named "set of seals" ! U can use the reg number off the cars in my build thread...
