I had an extra breather tube laying around so I figured I would mess it up to show the guys on here who wonder how this is done.

1) Remove the rear breather tube using these directions http://oooo-a3.blogspot.com/2008/03/pcv-replacement-and-eurojet-valve.html

2) Look into tube to see if you even have the check valve; if it looks like this inside on the top forward you have the check valve. The red arrow points to the check vlave; this is all you want to remove. NOT ALL THE PLASTIC JUST THE SMALL VALVE


3) Put a decent sized phillips screwdriver against the check valve.


4) Hit the handle of the screwdriver until the valve pops loose. This doesn't take alot of pressure; I did it with my hands.

5) Check to make sure all the parts broke out and aren't hanging loose. If they are remove them. Your should look like this now.


6) Shake out all the parts. Should look something like this.


7) Valve successfully removed.


8) Reinstall with the directions you used to remove it.

Hope this helps someone.

hmm... when i did mine i removed the entire thing (all the black plastic), not just the center piece of the valve. i had to crack it into pieces to do that though. its over and done with now, but was that the wrong thing to do?

I didn't do it just because it scares me that the breather tube may slip out. If you need a new tube let me know and if you will pay shipping I'll send you the one I used to make the write-up. It has oil in it but was only installed about 3 months ago.

So i am assuming you have to remove the intake to get this off?

I see it mentioned 5mm hex, but what is a universal joint?
