There is definitely a diaphram in mine. When I first 'tested' it I sucked on the various ports (don't ask what possessed me to do that!) and, for obvious reasons, did not keep this up long. The second time I blew into the ports while blocking the others in various configurations to see where it directed the air and it was into the suction port. At the air intake end, there should be a grill/spokes like part, which the diaphram (which in mine is orange) sits against, anchored with a bit of plastic in the centre.

comment Oil in air intake: is this a faulty breather valve or by design?
Thank you, I think this is true of my car also. My concern was the quantity of oil and the fact that I thought the breather valve was not operating correctly. Today a week after refitting the valve, I checked the air filter and saw no sign of oil, and amounts in the hose had decreased. I also spent more time attempting to figure out the operation of the valve by blowing into its various ports and it appears it is operating correctly, with all ports allowing air to flow into the 'suction' port but not back into the intake.

I suppose vague is good in that it doesn't rule them out! I'll install and see how they look (illuminate) compared to other cars and hopefully that will be OK. That site looks very useful; Thank You!
