      Not really, especially for a couple hundred bux. The diaphragm doesn't really wear out, it is either intact or it's ripped. And unless the cyclones are crudded up, or the oil ports into the block are clogged. there's not much reason to go in there.

      I did mine yesterday when replacing the alternator and thermostat- the worst job is getting the airbox out- good hint to go underneath for the lower bolts on the oil filter housing as I tried to do mine from above for a while

      I'm going to say you should consider it. I had my upper radiator hose changed as preventive maintenance and I wish I had thought to do the PCV at that time. Two months later my PCV went bad and I had it done the next day because I was in panic mode and didn't want to blow seals. Well long story short it's leaking oil on the passenger side and now it's going in for timing belt and seals. I plan to add it to my preventative maintenance list.

      Did you already have the 'new' style with the rubber hose or was it still the old style that's prone to failure?

      I recently got the whistle that goes away with the dipstick pull, I replaced just the pcv diaphragm. The whistle is gone but I still can't get the 2187 code to stay cleared. It has the newer hoses on it not the accordion style of the earlier ones. Does this mean I need to replace the whole assembly? Any input greatly appreciated.

      How To: Replace Oil Filter Housing

      Try disconnecting the wiring to the PTC resistor on the housing and see if it goes away.

      Great Job man thanks a million I know it’s an old thread but it still
      Works I just replaced my oil housing on my 2014 S60 T5 due to a pretty bad oil leak. It was the same concept. Thanks again.
