Haven't heard of any kits.

But there are a couple of VW OEM alternatives,

1) Do you have the plastic oil deflector tray under your valve cover?

2) This one will require you get a different valve cover from your local
yard. VW makes a oil separator that fits in a rubber grommet in the
valve cover(vs a hose that fits on a nipple) It is a four inch so
canister , about 2in tall, which a hose connects to and goes to the

Also check that the wire mess screen under the valve cover is clean and
not clogged.
