How to do I replace the EVAP Purge Valve (a.k.a. Fuel Tank Breather Valve)?
I downloaded the OBDII code and discovered that I need to replace my Evaporative Emissions (EVAP) Purge Valve [some people know it to be the Fuel Tank Breather Valve]. I've located the EVAP purge valve mounted beneath the intake manifold. It looks like I either need to remove the intake manifold or remove the air filter housing to even have a chance to reach it. Unfortunately, there isn't much detailed DIY information on this subject for the 2002 325i (E46).
What's the easiest way to gain access to the EVAP purge valve/fuel tank breather valve and replace it?
