    Hi mate. I found some on ebay, and bought a spare one too as they were cheap. I can't remember the exact ebay trader, but found another for you, I believe the ones I bought were for an audi. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Vacuum-One-Way-Check-Valve-fit-for-1-8T-Audi-A4-VW-Passat-06A-133-528-A-/132040829899

    I spoke with him, he offered to replace just the filter or refund me $30 for the filter. He said he forgot to tell me he did not replace it! WTF. I told him it would need the existing oil drained, as it is now contaminated (that is if he even changed it) so wanted a full refund to get it done. After 5 mins of him refusing, I used the words "small claims court," without hesitation he offered a full refund, which went back into bank acc yesterday. To me, if it was an innocent mistake, there would have been some defence SURELY.. its not until I had bad work done, that's when I read the other bad reviews on Google.. lesson learnt. So I will name and shame this rip off Muppet.. http://www.motorossi.com.au/ AVOID THIS GUY..

    Is it a genuine Renault filter? Not heard of purflux before.. Does anyone know what the inline valve thing is on the crankcase breather?

    Yes, It makes sense now. I had two whining kids in the car, enroute, so I guess his comments went over my head at the time. I mean I just paid for a service, why would i even doubt any work was done... I will be courteous from now on.

    I got ripped off with a exterior detail, cut an polish last weekend too. Chappy messed it up first time, came back to fix up swirl marks. I thought it was ok until I saw next day in better sunlight. He said he won't refund, but will try again. I said no you clearly don't know what you are doing. Another c##k smoker that thinks he can rip off a pom.

    Having recently purchased my first Megane sport, I thought I'd treat it to an oil service change before the next log book service in about 4000 mms. Found a local garage offering $129 oil and filter change, and check over.4 days ago, Tuesday 3rd ,October I took it to the garage. Half way through the service I got the call I was expecting, " Megane needs this, needs that etc etc" I said no, just oil, filter and top up fluids.. 2 hours later picked it up, no dramas. Chappy said the oil is still dark because you didn't go with the engine flush.. ok I said, paid and left. Later that day and rest of the week I noticed it missing slightly on idle, so treated Megane to a set of new bosch platinum plugs today, got home lifted bonnet to fit. So it begins! Noticed the crankcase vacuum breather hose had been snapped at the point it meets ( a thing ) please tell me what it is? And fixed badly with electrical tape... See pic.. Gave it a general look over and noticed the oil filter was old, dusty and certainly not 4 days old, to me it seems like an original Renault one, says made in France.. The garage is shut today, so spent all arvo muttering woo saa, saying calm and relax to myself.. I gave up smoking 5 weeks ago... woo saa..

    I hate working on cars though, had enough of stripped knuckles restoring a series 3 land rover.
