1.8TFSI REAR MAIN CRANK SEAL UPGRADE

I've seen that there is an upgraded replacement for the 2.0TFSI engine but I cant find anything for the 1.8TFSI. My crank seal has failed within a week of a garage fitting a new one. Faulty part, faulty install or faulty PCV etc.

I've removed the oil cap whilst the engine was running and the engine ran a little worse which would indicate a working PCV.

Any help and advise on the matter would be deeply grateful.
Cheers!

Can you take it back to the garage if the work was only carried out a week ago?

It’s going back this weekend for them to sort it but was wondering if there were any revised parts or upgrades to the OEM seal?
Anything else, apart from the PCV, to cause the seal to go?
