2003 BMW 325xi Question: pcv valve replacement
Answer #1ZeeTech March 21, 2011, 16:31Master
Normally the intake manifold has to be removed to get access to the breather / oil separator assembly (PCV valve). I strongly suggest to get all the connecting hose replaced as well and use the updated "cold weather valve" upgrade.
I know some tech claims they could do it without removing the manifold, but it risky and could create problems.
