    Hi need some help guys. Hard to explain but I'll get pic up tomorow morning. The part where oil goes into. (the cylinder shaped part) . Just noticed that my one pulls straight off with minimal effort and I've got a slight messy bay now due to oil getting out :(

    What I want to know is this cylinder shaped item meant to screw into the top of engine as my one seems to have somthing missing as it's just a pin going through the middle that is loose?!

    I know your probably thinking what you on about but I'll get pic in the morning. Where can I get this part from as well the breakers near mine ain't got one and what is exact name? Thanks

    They are about a fiver from a dealer... mine went and I ordered one from my local dealer... don't have the part number to hand but its on the plastic bit somewhere...

    Took my local dealer a few minutes to find it as they insisted it was part of the rocker cover and tried to sell me a new cover at over 70 quid IIRC... gave them the PN and they realised the mistake :)

    theres one on there for a tenner. search breather. looks similar.

    looks like it pops in and twists to lock in place, but one of the metal prongs has bent.
