its behind the Oil cap. Down about 3 inches into the engine block. Pinch the hose that connects to it and if the funny noise stops then it needs changing.

Bearing in mind, a working PCV valve when the hose is pinched makes the engine shudder quite a bit.

£55 for a valve ain't cheap fella . I'll grab a new one anyway

£30 brand new from Tegiwa with the new rubber hose is what it cost me. If you got the part number theres plenty on eBay for less than that as well.

Health of your engine is with £55 as its a once in a lifetime maintenance. Part and parcel fo owning a car, maintenance.

I always take the printout from Cox to my dealer and ask for price match if they don't come out cheaper.
Sometimes they actually start cheaper in the first place.

They either want your money or they don't.
