RB PVC Valve DIY.

Searched the internet for hours, all I could find is one diy with blurry zoomed in pictures. Ill be uploading my own pictures. difficulty is propably 2/10 and I recommend everyone to do it, especially if your car sometimes smells like burnt oil and if there's an occasional blue smoke from your exhausts @vacum. Untill now there are no signs of burning oil smell and no sign of smoke from exhausts (knock on wood)

Directions:
1) first off, order the Rob Beck pcv valve, most stores carry it.




some people also replace the Blow-By Vent Hose (Part#11157553949), I didn't


2) remove engine cowl as shown here in this Diy published by member Stinger
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=658985

3) Remove your engine cover by unscrewing the 4 bolts...

4) unclip the blow-by vent hose so you could have access to more room, because its kinda tight and then unscrew the cover of the pcv housing as shown in the picture.


4) remove your old pcv. if its tight in there and would like to avoid breaking it, simply put a metal cylinder like a drillbit or something inside then take it out with pliers.





5) Replace your old pcv with the new, keep in mind to install it in the same orientation as the old one. meaning the long end is facing the back and the large end faces the front.

6)Screw back the pcv cover back
7)clip the blowby tube back
8)install engine cover
9)install engine cowl

I'd just add that removal and insertion of the valves is made easier if you yank the cyl. 6 fuel rail. I can't recall what the torque specs are (17lbs?) but that gives you some nice room to maneuver.

The blurry pics one was the one that Rob was linking to on his posts selling the valve. Those were the ones I found first.

Then I found yours which made the steps much more clear.
