    Hi exec,

    I think I've seen some other 6th gens with that missing. It should have a black rubber (might be plastic) hood. I remember it being a right-angle shape so its effectively a breather I presume, so best not to plug it entirely. I'll take a pic of mine tomorrow.

    breather cap .. don't be washing your car engine bay or go into huge puddles as water will get into the gear box and rust it before you know it.

    Go back to them and ask for it or ask them to buy you a replacement.

    As stated there should be a rubber right angle breather boot on there. Its probably been knocked on something when the gearbox was out. Just pop back and speak to them and either ask if they can find it or source you a replacement. Unfortunately small things like this do get knocked off from time to time when large bits of drivetrain are removed. If I spot one on my travels I'll grab it for you.

    Thanks for the quick responses guys, I will try and pop by when I have the time, although I suspect its long gone, otherwise just going to buy it myself from HH.

    good on you. Hopefully you will be able to source one, otherwise it will be just as easy to get a used one from a scrap yard, I am sure Civics will share the same part.

    Yeh hopefully HH will be able to get one, showing up as £7 on Lings, so hopefully few quid cheaper with HH.

    Don't really have any decent scrapyards in London, all the old ones shut a long time ago, might have a gander one ebay.

    @exec that is something of a shame mate, though I suppose London scrap yards would be newer cars and taxi's as the older ones are less efficient in the city and have long since gone.

    There used to be loads of scrap yards all over the place, but most got shut down and evicted to make new homes for yuppies and foreign investors. I think there is one Jap scrap parts, but i don't know where it is and can't remember what its called.

    Thank you legendary :Niceone: will take a look at that, can see one 6th Generation there, shame its on the other side of the river!
