Hey all, I'm reassembling my motor and have a question about the Oil Non-Return Valve PN: 022103175

The part itself fits into the cylinder deck hole and sits there with an O ring, inside of the valve there are threads, I cannot remember when I disassembled it if there was something inside those threads,



Should there be something inside this threaded valve with outer o-ring?




When I go on ECS I can find the similar 12-pt screw part, but it states it doesn't fit the MKIV R32

taken from a different VR6 (not 3.2 24v) thread






The Bentley Manual states to torque it to 5 Nm (44in-lb):

Any information is much appreciated!

I believe my engine code is BJS

I believe I have found the answer to this question which is, there is no screw type part that threads into anything (Threads most likely used for removal if needed)

Speculation: Perhaps on the older VR6 block/heads they used this screw but came up with this valve instead.
