After a search I got the CB Performance Oil Breather, but I did not realize that it will hit the rain catch.

I installed straight and in the third foto you can see how the rain catch put it back, it is ahhhh :cry:

Any ideas ?

Thanks for your help.

Is it the small filter only that is hitting the rain tray?

Hi Vince, no is not the small filter, is the top border of the breather.

I can think of three options, in order of decreasing expense:

1) try a 69 and earlier rear decklid w/ the integrated rain tray;

2) return the CB oil filler/breather combo and go back to stock or switch to a different filler type;

3) remove the plastic rain tray and don't drive your car in the rain.

Obviously, #2 is the most practical option. :lol:

If it was the filter element, you could put a double elbow on it and relocate it to the side.

But, since it is the housing itself, I'm with Sactojesse: take the unit back. Perhaps they sold you one for the Beetle instead of the Ghia?

As mentioned above you could go for a different breather. Here's mine :-

It's deceiving how much room isn't in a Ghia engine compartment. Here is my new breather system.

could you rotate it back more?

I had the same problem with the Berg unit I have. I had considered heating up the rain tray and reshaping it to make the breather fit but decided to just remove the tray. [img]
