    Hi all,

    I did the PCV delete from Westys thread today due to some split hoses.

    On top of the oil filter housing is a 90 degree elbow (06A 103 213 F) and mine has deteriorate at the bottom and also has split.

    I am worried about any elements from the bottom of the pipe going into the oil filter housing!!

    I have driven 35 miles home after I used gaffa tape to repair the split, cleaned up the bottom of the hose and noticed no issues = engine temp, sounds etc....but when I got home as soon as the car was parked and the engine was off, I noticed no/little engine oil on the dlp stick but no low engine oil light.

    Can anyone advise please?

    pretty sure if you check oil in the morning it will be on the correct level on the dip stick.

    Thats the block breather, mine broke too.
    Its probably kicking out a bit of oil. Your car will need to settle to take an oil level, so maybe you havnt left it long enough. Just replace it asap

    It's common that the 90 degree pipe has perished, mine was the same. I don't think you would have caused any issues but I'd top the oil back up and keep an eye on it.

    Possible the oil level sensor or sensor wiring is damaged?

    Cheers guys. I will check in the morning. Any ideas on the cost of the block breather?

    Also was the bottom of yours perished as well? I noticed this fits directly inside the oil filter housing?

    I checked the engine oil this morning and no change.

    What do you think guys is it worth dropping out the oil, taking off the sump, cleaning out the oil pickup pipe?

    Well went to TPS for the part, I bought the oil filter, oil and o ring. They did not have a block breather on the shelf.

    I managed to get the block breather from eBay and saved £15 compared to TPS which is a touch.

    Sump gasket sealant from TPS is exceptionally high, Halfords wins lol.

    lol yeah I spoke to skills and he laughed, then explained that the gasket between the oil filter housing and block would not likely let any bits to go into the sump. I also checked that the dip stick as seated correctly, of which it was then I topped up the oil.

    So all I need to do is replace the block breather and o ring then its all good. Working S3.

    I must admit for the sack of £12.99 + £3.79 its worth just replacing these if you are going catch can like in Westys thread??

    If the bottom is mangled it actually sits in the oil filter housing and for £12.99 its cheap to fix. I used lots and lots of lube lol.
