  • Oil Filler Valve

    Hi Guys, long time since ive been on here . hope you are all good.
    Hardly used the Maestro Turbo recently apart from a couple of local Breakfast Clubs so nothing really to report.still waiting for my health issues to be sorted.
    However, (there is always a but), went for a run in the Turbo this afternoon. Checked the oil level, and it was down a fraction, nothing to worry about.
    Thought i would top it up. On trying to remove the oil filler cap, which seems to have some sort of crankcase venting system, it just fell apart in my hands.
    Not wishing to point fingers but suspect this was broken when it had its service in April and they didnt tell me, i wonder why. Not sure how crucial this part is, but, if you can get them, then want to replace it if possible.
    Any ideas guys. Is this part standard across the whole range.
    Cheers
    Tom

    Is the oil filler cap square or round? Square is no longer available, round is the same on all Maestros or Montegos with a 2.0 litre engine, link for one but as always check first

          Have done this, but looks like i have been scammed. Went onto the Ebay link that Jeff sent me, ordered and payed. was due for delivery Monday, but checking with Hermes, they have no record.
          I know its only a few quid, but thats not the point. Will be contacting the supplier, but dont hold out much hope. Just as well the part wasent hundreds of pounds.
          Ah well, you live and learn. the internet is a breeding ground for those that want to rip you off, even if only for a few quid, but magnify this by masses.
          Hey Ho.

            If you paid via paypal just put in a dispute and you'll be paid back. Don't understand if you've been scammed as the seller has good feedback and recent too

              It will turn up, try the tracking number in the royal mail website in case he has made a mistake.
