    Question PCV hose question . . . small piece replacable???

    I read through many of the threads on the pcv hose replacements.

    I have a 99 WS6.

    The thin hose that goes from the PCV to the TB nipple is torn.

    So, Can I just remove it and put a piece of hose from the pcv to the TB connection?

    Does the TB connection have a nipple to attach a hose to if I remove the flexible hose off of it? Does the hose just pull off?

    I can not tell by the pictures in the other threads that cover this. I see a lot about the longer hose replacements and replacing the pcv but nothing on the hose from the pcv to the TB.

    I just don't want to tear if off and find out that I can't just clamp on a piece of fuel line from the pcv onto the TB part to replace it.

    thanks

    Thanks . . . it looked simple enough but I didn't want to make the car undrivable for my wife if I couldn't just put another hose on it. Thank you.

    Fuel line works well and won't crack like the factory hose.

    Stock is 11/32" vacuum hose (cracks easily after a few years), but 3/8" fuel hose works fine...and lasts longer.
