Titanium E46 4Ever says:

you are a big mechanic.

Giggidygiggidy12 says:

this is a great vid, thank you. Any idea if I can clean the throttle body and IAC the same way on my X5 e53, the intake boots look different on your car than the X5 so I wasn't sure, also would it be better to pony up and just replace the IAC, any real benefit to replacing it vs cleaning it?

Ivan Roman says:

How can you tell when its the cold climate version?

J Winne says:

What are your thoughts on a CCV delete with an oil catch in its place? I live in a non smog area.

Brady Baxter says:

Awesome video, you're providing a great service for the E46 community, thanks!

Caleb Brown says:

You made this look so easy! About to tackle this one tomorrow wish me luck. CCV has been the likely culprit of a few problems I’ve had recently.

JR M says:

How long do you think this took you

John Michael says:

Great help! Thanks! Prior to installing the return line to the dip stick I would also recommend verifying the drain on the dipstick is not clogged. Mine was. Cleaned it out with piece of wire and cleaner.

Glenn Mabasa says:

So f*ing nice video!!!

Jason Lee says:

Just a tip:
The very top hose which connects to the air rail needs to be twisted into place. There are grooves that direct the twist. I just did this diy 2 weeks ago and was referencing this video and the 50s kid video. Sure you can connect it by just pushing it into place but it requires too much force and you might end up breaking the ccv. I also thought it was impossible.
Despite what others say and the fact that the space is extremly limited down there, it is 100% possible to twist the hose into place (under the intake manifold ) but it requires time.
