    Mine is April, 2011 punto and it does not have the breather pipe, instead there is pin type arrangement in the center of the cap, which lets the air to pass out. You can see the pin moving up when starting the car or stopping the car. Open the bonnet and ask some one to start the car then you can see this pin raises a bit to let air pass and stays down as long as engine is running and when stop the car again it raises to let the air pass and stays down. This I observed during HPS pipe upgrade done recently by TASS.

    A Pipe in hydraulic power steering circuit was replaced with a new one. Service centre guys had no idea, but they told that in a few cases there was oil leakage. But, I never had HPS oil leakage. However, they changed.
