8mm bolt here that holds the cover in place. Bring that up, and then the cover comes forward and off.

Disconnect the electrical lead by pulling the little tab out and up. Push on the clip to the side, twist up, and pull the hose off. You have an 8mm bolt here that holds it in. Remove the bolt. Pull the valve up and out. Remove that.

Then put it onto your new one. Got my new one, so I’ll just put a little bit of oil on my finger, and then put on that O-ring to make sure it goes in easily. Put it down and in, and secure it with the bolt. Tighten it up.

Clean up your engine cover, and then you put it in. Just make sure it locks back in to the tabs back there. Get it in place and tighten it up with the 8mm socket ratchet.

Thanks for watching. Visit us at 1AAuto.com for quality auto parts, fast and free shipping, and the best customer service in the industry.
