    Hey all, hoping someone could give me a little info on this as no amount of searching seems to have helped. Need to change the O Ring on the CPV valve and wondered if anyone has managed to do this from the top down rather than the bottom up?

    Not the end of the world if not, but wondered if exhaust heat shields removed and EGR valve etc if it could be got at?

    It’s really easy to do from underneath takes about 5 mins, don’t think it’s accessible from the top due to the manifold ? Was a while ago I did mine but underneath was easy as

    Is the cpv set at a certain torque or just go with "feel"?
