    Anyone replaced one of these yourself? It broke this morning on my way to a certification class and ordered a new one on the way home. Not bad cost around $40~ Main concern is how much of a bitch is it to get the hose off the valve cover without removing the cover? I looked at it and it seems to be a difficult feat considering the amount of working space back there. I have the Alldata cert so I will get the whole procedure just want any pointers or things to look at.

    I do not personally have any experience with these. From what I have seen and read though a couple of screwdrivers gets it off of there with some difficulty. That's if you aren't worried about destroying that hose end. Fuel line removal tools I hear don't work with the given space. Also may have to pull the cover to remove the hose.

    ffs, was hoping i didn't have to remove the valve cover :/ if i take it off i might as well paint it.

    to replace the valve I had to get the whole hose any way. so what ever happens to the existing hose end i could care less about.

    You bought a whole new stock hose? Most just replace it with appropriately sized rubber fuel hose. VC isn't that hard to remove, saves you the headache later.

    spam^^^

    pvc and the hose don't have separate part numbers, so they come as one unit.
