    Question Bleed filter thingy...

    Anyone know where/how to buy "JUST" the thing circled in this image?

    It keeps getting damaged/compresses/crumples and I need to replace it.

    Thanks!

    Re: Bleed filter thingy...

    I tried that. I was just looking for the mesh piece at the end. I tried to buy it before, but apparently it wasn't the right type/size, so I was wondering if there was a place I wasn't aware of to get just that piece. If not, I'll buy the tube thingy, too....just seems like $15 for that stuff is steep if I'm replacing it a few times/year.

    I have had the same one for 5 years, why does it matter if it has a few dents, as long as there are not holes.

    The dent corners turn in to holes, so I thought it was effecting the performance...

    Thanks Scoop! Unfortunately, I ordered that same part off Amazon last year and had to return it because it doesn't fit the same I think the only way to find just the vent thing is to order the assembly Thanks for the sunplay link, that's what I need!!
