    Thread: DIY - 1.8t Lower PCV Hose install, pics!

    1. 01-27-2010 02:23 AM #76
      How can I disconnect the white connector near the lower engine block connector? I can't see the shape of the connector clearly from outside, so can't figure out how. Thanks.

      It would be sooooo much easier if you took the intake mani off, but you don't have to. If you have small hands I'd say just keep it on.

      Yeah it realllllly sucked big time. Pretty sure I need to go back and push the plastic block connecter in more with the c clip. I got a Po107 code at autozone I think (dont remember exactly)... car is running lean though.
      Basically I just destroyed the one time use clips and had to cut off the T because it wouldnt come off the block connector, someone had glued them together! Just take your time and stay calm bro, getting frustrated will only increase your chances of breaking something.

      You can get everything off with the intake manifold on. You just need small hands, and you can reach from both sides of the manifold to get your hands in there.

      ok well i finally was able to unbolt the intake manifold and get to the lower pcv hose. broke a couple hoses in the process lol but i think i can just repleace those by going to Napa or something. lets hope that works and hope my eurojet hose comes in tomorrow....

      Don't know what hoses you broke, but any part of the pcv system is "dealer only".. thats what I was told. You could always rig something up with heater hose if needed. Good luck!

      i have a quick question. on the Eurojet site. it says that the replacement kit the offer for the top and bottom hoses is for the MK4 1.8t. i'm assuming that would work on my 1.8t GTI right?

      i'm assuming when you said your 1.8t GTI you were referring to a mk4 1.8t which you mentioned you read off the eurojet site right
      this means the answer is YES

      no, mine is not an MK4, just a 2002 1.8T GTI. i did not see a kit for that on Eurojet so i was curious if the MK4 one would work.

      I have a MK4 2001 jetta 1.8T with hoses look exactly like the picture, I purchased the eurojet lower PCV hose like everyone suggested and found out that the eurojet hose cannot connect to the PCV valve because the angle is not right. does anyone else has this problem?

      will a broken breather hose cause loss of boost? or what will?

      OK, so I've got the other type of bleeder valve/hose assembly thing:

      Assuming I buy the other type of valve (shown in the diagram), where do I run the other line that came off of the crankcase bleeder valve I had? It runs from that bleeder valve back up to the valve cover onto a nipple that comes off the side of the inlet where the upper Y-hose goes. Does it get capped? Or run somewhere else?

      I'm also stumped on this, I was going to cap it, but I have no idea if it's used for a vacuum or what. I've been searching for hours and haven't been able to find ANYTHING about it.
      posted a reply on this one too, he has the same engine http://forums.fourtitude.com/z...78652

      Just some more notes on this. It's definitely a PITA!

      1) During removal of old hose, I had to cut the portion connected to the PCV valve. I'd suggest doing this if it doesn't come off easily after the large metal ring is removed.
      2) Remove the dipstick tube. Mine wouldn't come out and I broke it anyways. Apparently, if any portion falls into the oil pan, it's designed to dissolve.
      3) You will probably need to trim the lower hose before connecting it to the upper hose.
      4) I used the zip tie idea to remove the C ring. Worked like a charm.

      Great write up! Just used it to install the 034 Motorsports kit on my wifes car.

      Can't for the life of me get that damn C clip out of the oil filter housing! Help!!!

      Pretty much rendering my efforts useless. To make things worse the plastic dipstick funnell cracked near the lower collar.
