Get a catch can and be done bro. Just get a reputable one (not autozone) and clean it all the time. How many miles are you?

I don't need another serviceable part, nor do i feel like dropping $500 on a part that has no real proven benefit. But that's totally subjective.

My PCV has about 10k miles on it, that said its a Vaico aftermarket one. Thats probably the problem.

Could already be a failing diaphragm or excessive crank case pressure forcing oil through tiny imperfections. Might wanna swap back to an OEM replacement.

Problem right there. They're junk. Get an OEM revision AC. That should be ok for a while.

AH is the new one. I believe they go in alphabetical order.

Ended up buying it from FCP. Best price + life time warranty.

AH is definitely the latest revision, I got one from VW just a couple of weeks ago, they confirmed it was the latest revision available.

$159.95 seems a bit high though, I paid 67.80GBP ($89.19US), from the dealership here in the UK, I thought VAG parts were priced similarly across the globe?
