We're yours teared or damaged?Thank you folks for the posts here. I came across these posts looking for a solution for my oil consumption. And sure enough my AOSs are in bad shape. Someone mentioned that they could really thought it was a pulley whining. I thought the same all along. It wasn’t. I have been consuming oil (1qt every 2000miles) and dealing with soot and some smell. No oil leaks. Now I know what to do. I have ordered the same klifex diaphragm as noted in the post above. Will report on the outcome and what I think of the quality. On some topics, the community knowledge in this forum is better than the knowledge of the dealers.
One had a very small tear. The other was stuck to the cap. I couldn’t remove it from the cap. It felt like it would completely disintegrate if I tried to remove it. The cylindrical section in the middle is miushy mn both.We're yours teared or damaged?

Did the CAP pop off easily...no damage ? It could leak air if damaged ?
@torresfe Any reason you chose the Volvo Amazon version as opposed to the Porsche one ? Better fitment perhaps?Good News for those who want to fix their OIL Separator Diaphragms themself. After some research I found the right 51mm Diaphragms on amazon with Prime Delivery.
Ordered 2 of them and my 2017 Macan S was fixed for around $64 including tax. Please take note that: I only replaced the diaphragms and re used the original springs, Black rings and Caps.
Hope this information can help someone in a pinch of time just like me as some times ordering OEM Parts can take up to two weeks or more for delivery and the car is needed back in service ASAP.
Teddis; the only reason why I choose the Volvo version is just because they are the right size Diaphragms (51mm), No Porsche version on amazon that I could find on the needed size. I did order the same Klifex Diaphragms (Porsche version) sold thru Ebay, they ship from an overseas location; before finding the ones on Amazon. It has been three weeks and I still waiting for them to arrive on the mail. If they ever arrive, I will keep them as spares. The Klifex Diaphragms quality is a lot better than the OEM ones. I have put around 500 miles on the Macan so far with no issues or warning lights.
