Yes, its plastic and plastic doesn't last a life time in acidic hot oily conditions... so yes in an emergency if you had to drive it, i wouldn't see anything major happening,,,but little bits of plastic will be breaking of as time goes by and it could possible clog up an oil pickup line.then you might have a problem...always keep an eye out for oil pressure light...if it comes on, it might be due to that piece that broke off. you definately dont want to drive the car with the oil pressure light on...get off the highway and to nearest service station.

How do i get my oil sensor light on a bentley continental gt 2004 model to go off after the sensor was replaced


If the sensor was the problem the light would have gone out automatically, this means that the sensor that was replaced was not the cause of the light being on. Was this the oil pressure sensor or the oil level sensor? Often the wrong sensor is replaced in my experience as a 35 year technician.

How do I check transmission flued in a 2006 Bentley flying spur


With a Bentley you would take it to the Bentley dealership :>)

Lift the hood and look for the dipstick. There is one for the engine and one for transmission which normally has a clip to hold it down.

For the reason I stated first, there are no videos except for Continental.

2005 Bentley Continental GT rear drivers side window not going up all the way


with respect, if you can afford a Bentley, you can afford to have it serviced. You are not going to be able to fix it yourself as it involves removing the internal panel and working through the holes in the door to find out if the glass has come loose, or whether it is a switch problem inside the door.

To make the car safe short term, have someone lower the window completely and then have a second person hold both sides of the glass with the door open and help the glass rise into the upper track.
