    Thread: DIY: Diverter Valve Replacement 1.8T

    1. 11-02-2006 03:04 AM #1
      Please contact me if you have pictures for this or complete it and take pictures on the way. I will add them to this post. 03_uni-b



      I take no responsibility of any damage done to your vehicle. Use these instructions at your own risk. You know your capabilities.

      That being said, lets get started...

      Most of what is shown here is applicable to all 1.8T engines.
      For this DIY, I am replacing the stock diverter valve with the VW.OEM TT Bypass Valve (part # 06A.145.710.N), and two medium size hose clamps, and one small hose clamp

      Tools required:
      1. A medium size flat-blade screw driver
      2. Needle nose pliers, tin snips, or a dremel with a cutting disc to cut the one-time only clamps
      3. Some motor oil or vegetable oil

      Step 1 - Remove engine cover

      Step 2 - Locate the stock diverter valve

      Step 3 - Remove the hoses from the stock diverter valve. To do this, you will need to cut off the one-time use only clamps. You may use needle nose pliers, or you can break the "loop" part of the clamp with strong tin snips or use a dremel with a cutting disc. Warning: If you choose to use a dremel, it will cut through the clamp like butter, be careful and keep your hand steady so that you do not accidentally cut into the hose.

      Step 4 - After cutting off the one time use hose clamps, remove the hose from the top nipple. Then remove the hose from the bottom nipple. After that remove the hose from the side nipple. The Side nipple may be a little bit difficult to slide out but give it a strong tug. DO NOT DROP ANYTHING INTO THESE OPEN HOSES. After removing your stock valve, put the hose clamps on the bottom and side hoses. (In the picture I have the small hose clamp also on the top hose. Do not do this because you will be risking dropping the small hose clamp into the open hose on the bottom)


      Step 5 - Put some vegetable or motor oil on the bottom and side nipple of the new diverter valve that you are installing. This will help it slide into the hoses. In the picture the stock diverter valve is on the right and the new diverter valve is on left.

      Step 6 - Install the new diverter valve. Put the small hose clamp on the upper hose and put it on the top nipple. Tighten all hose clamps

      Step 7 - Put your engine cover back on and you are done

      hey man, a lot of people don't know how to do this. and a lot of people on the tex here ask about DV's and how to swap them. I thought I would help a lot of people out by doing a DIY write up since there isn't one for DV's in the DIY thread.

      i guess this is true..there are a lot of "non-car" folk that try and do things they prob shouldn't and this i guess could help..

      PM a mod and ask them to add this tothe DIY/FAQ in my sig if its not there already , don't keep bumping it...it gets annoying

      It might be worth mentioning that with larger DV's, you may need to get a splicing barb and attach the vacuum hose that goes on top to an additional segment of hose. That way, you won't put a kink in it.

      You guys shouldn't hate so much, it's annoying...

      I don't know much about cars, but I would like to learn. Unlike many of you, I didn't have a father that was into automotive repair or even a shop class at my high school (the program was shut down). So basically, all I have to go off of is the occasional manual and the internet because I don't know too many mechanics that will teach people for free.

      Props for your writeup. Good pics, good advice.

      On my 2005 GTI there is already a screw clamp on the bottom hose but the other 2, like yours, are one-time-use clamps. Also, on my car the top clamp is a 3/4" clamp and the side (and i assume bottom b/c urs look the same size) is 1.25" clamp.
      maybe u can add this to the diy so that people know what to go get.

      thanks for the write-up.

      umm, 1 small question, is the DV you used gonna make that sweet sound, or is there an aftermarket one to do that? sry, but i'm super noobish, and i'm also the type of person that don't do something unless they're absolutely, sure about what they gotta do

      Thanks for this thread... It actually reminded me to get out my synthetic grease and give my dv a tuneup.
