tools needed for a CCV/CCV hoses DIY

i need to do this. Just saw I have a leaky hose so im gonna go in there and replace everything. I seen Bimmian has a great video. Can anyone give me a list of tools that I'll need? Any tips before I tackle this would be helpful.

Really appreciate it guys. Indy shops wanna charge $300 alone in labor. So i just got the parts in last week and need to tackle my self. Just need to know what tools I'll need.

Are you taking you intake manifold off?

You will need 10mm socket & extensions
Small screw driver for removing intake boots
You will need the correct size torx socket to get the CVV off. Around T25 or T30.

Take a look at BavAuto video showing how to remove CVV without removing intake.
Engine swaps, HG, GM & ZF tranny rebuilds.

A flexible shaft driver helps a lot too.

Not to bad of a job. One of the first ones I tackled. Nicker has a DIY posted on here with the tools and parts needed. I think I used the Bav Auto videos on YouTube. They split it into 3 vids and do a good job. You might want to think about doing the oil filter housing gasket while your in there. I did them separately a year apart but you have a little extra time it's like a $6 gasket.

Also stay calm when fighting with those hoses. They do fit back together but damn it's a tight spot.
