Alex, so the needed parts are the CVV, vent pipe, connecting line, vent hose, the return pipe and the dipstick housing, right? Do I need any o-rings, etc?
Jake, if you buy the kit from Tisher it will contain everything you need ($150) and it's cheaper then buying parts separetely. The only additional thing I bought was the lower intake boot, PN 13541435627. You can also buy a throttle housing gasket in addition, PN 11611716174. I just reused mine.
If you do decide to buy everything separately this is the parts list from Lbert's diy:
These are included in Tisher's kit:
11617501566 Oil Separator
11611432559 Oil Separator Hose to Valve Cover
11157532629 Oil Separator Oil Dip Stick hose
11617504535 Oil Separator Connecting Hose
11617504536 Return Pipe from Connecting Hose
11431740045 O-Ring Oil Dip Stick Tube to Oil Pan
11611716174 Throttle Housing Gasket
13541435627 Air Intake Boot; Lower
Alright so is Tisher a user on Bimmerfest or a parts supplier? I am having a hell of a time getting all the parts and I refuse to go to the dealer so a kit is very attractive right now, does this include everything for the CCV as well as the Oil separator system?
I replaced the Oil Separator Valve and put it all back together...several times...now the car doesn't start.
It turns over, but that is about it.
There was a small hose on the original which was covered on the new OSV, this connected up to the silver bit of kit above the manifold. I didn't replace this hose, just removed it.
