(this retaining clip is supposed to twist off counter clock wise but that wasn't working for me so this is what I did )
Ok so now you are gona wanna sneek that flat head under the retaining clip on the right side to start with. After some wiggling and prying you should be able to sneek it under there and un-clip on side like shown in the second pic. After you get one side loose just work you way around to the left side and it should come right off. In the third pic you will see the PCV valve, O-ring, and Retaining Clip (Every thing you need for the new one).
Ok after you put the O-ring on the new PCV valve and put the Retaining clip back over it re-attach it to the hose on the intake manifold like in the picture. Now when re-intstalling back onto the car it is gona be a pain. Your gona need a very long flat head to give your self leverage once the PCV valve is back in its spot on the block to secure the retaining clip back on. Once you do that your done ! HAHAHA NOT !
Re-install your intake manifold. Obviously the reverse of how to take it off ! The only advice i can give you is put one bolt in the top right (throttle body long bolt) and the very bottom bolt next. At this point go for the PITA middle bolt. The reason i say this is because if you miss the middle bolt and it falls this way you are only taking off 2 of the easiest to reach bolts in order to retrieve a possible fallen middle bolt. After you get them all back in and everything plugged in. PRAY PRAY PRAY ! Start it up and make sure it sounds the same as before. Any questions or advice feel free to hit me up or suggestions.
