The hose on mine is pretty split and perished - the more I try to shorten it, the worse it gets!

Is it as difficult as it seems to get at the lower end?

Thanks

Between the PCV valve and the air filter housing, c 19mm ID.

The bottom ends seems v difficult to reach at first sight.

Sorry didn't recognise 'PCV'.

Yes the bottom end is all but impossible to get at with the inlet manifold in place. The best way I've found is with a (very) long screwdriver from underneath but if the hose clip isn't in the right position it can be a problem. You might be able to get in with a Dremmel or fretsaw to cut the old one off.

Thanks Stuart

Another codge has been effected until inspiration/opportunity beckons.

The hose I have bought ( reinforced) is a little too stiff too.
