Yep - but I didn't realize it was felt. When mine came apart - I saw a spring and a small plastic disk which sealed the hole. The pressure would compress the spring - vent the pressure - then the spring would press the plastic disc back over the vent.Hands On said:Are you refering to the breather valve? Which is just a tin cap and felt.
Mine is vented right now - I've put a make-shift filter to keep debris from getting into the tranny. I'd prefer to have the oem on there - but the only way to get to it is to drop the tranny - so I guess it will wait until I do a clutch change.Hands On said:I highly doubt there is a special tool made to remove it. The bottom of it has tabs that are bent over I believe. Looks like you will have to keep opening your fill plug from time to time to release the pressure.
