    Thought I would bump this, as I'm looking to do a full service in mine and was also wondering if this is a servicable item according to VX ? Seen various threads on how to, but my 2003 has only covered 42K miles and no issues so not looking to replace unless its recommended as per VX seervice guide.

    Thx

    replace every 100k km just to be safe.

    although they say its not meant to be replaced. you will notice a nice difference if you do it.
