    HELP! Need PCV Rubber Boot to pass smog!

    Anyone know where I can get just the rubber "boot" that the PCV valve fits into for a '98 Trans Am?
    It's the boot that has a metal bracket slide into it around the PCV valve and attaches to the valve cover.
    I can't get this from the dealer.
    I failed smog in California because my boot has a tear in it.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    if your talking about the small rubber elbow? then find a piece of rubber tubing the same size and use that... i grabbed a piece of fluid hose off my grandfathers old ass chevy and heated it up to fit right where the existing one was... worked like a charm and never had a problem again

    Thanks, but it's not an elbow, it's more of an adapter....
    It looks like this, but mine has a metal clip and not a wire.

    They are very picky about the smog check around here. They wont let me tape it or do anything else to repair it.The dealer sells the entire assembly for around $100, but I only need the rubber boot that the PCV valve fits into.

    Any help?

    Thanks!

    if the rubber is still soft, buy some rubber cement and glue it back together. just try to rough up in between the tear a little to give the glue something to bond to.

    Thanks, I usually run a coalescing filter in the PCV line to catch oil....but for smog reasons I have to be completely stock during inspection.
    Nobody else has had to replace this rubber boot? Thanks for any info if you know the best place to get one. I may have to hit the junkyards if that is my only option.

    I've found some rather odd emisssions parts at our local NAPA. They may not have one at a particular store but ask to look through their catalogs and you might find one they can get in a few days.
