APR DQ500 DSG / S Tronic Transmission Catch Can and Breather System

APR DQ500 Catch Can to prevent transmission fluid spraying in your engine bay

The ultimate DQ500 DSG / S Tronic transmission catch can and breather system is here! The factory transmission features a plastic breather system that allows for transmission fluid expansion and removal of gases. Unfortunately, this system easily becomes taxed, causing transmission fluid to spew all over the engine bay. The APR system fixes this problem through the use of an easy-to-install and compact catch can system. The larger can collects the expanded fluids and allows for venting of trapped gases through a breather filter. The can is larger than stock and fluids enter at an angle to help prevent the fluids from spraying through the breather filter. When possible, the transmission fluid simply drains back into the transmission.

Features:

  • Large CNC-machined billet-aluminum catch can
  • Black anodized finish with APR logo
  • Cotton gauze breather filter with APR logo
  • Laser cut and CNC-bent mounting bracket
  • Fluorosilicone lined expansion hose
  • Prevents transmission fluid from spraying all over engine bay
  • Allows trapped gases to escape, as intended by the factory
  • Fluid enters at an angle as to reduce spraying and filter loading
  • Drain back system prevents the need to empty the can
APR DQ500 transmission catch can installed in engine bay next to brake fluid reservoir
