My oil fill tube is cracked and I need to replace it? got the tube and know how to get the engine side

off and back on, but I can't tell if the tube connection to the rear trunk is clamped or not. I just can't seem to contort

myself to get a view -- or get a mirror down there to see.

2000 Boxster S

any help?

thanks,

Mike

The tube is attached by a spring clamp. I had my transmission out when I replaced mine. I also removed the air tube from the intake box (where filter is) to the throttle body and the resonator too. This created room to get to the clamp from above.

thanks for the picture -- might be easier to get to it from the trunk through the wire connector rubber grommet hole......

either way should be a good PITA!

thanks again,

Mike

Wow what a royal PITA!

Took me about 3 hours -- but I finally got it out and the new one back in.

From above you can get the engine side -- but the firewall side I had to

attack the clip from down below -- but I couldn't quite snag it -- was able to

do it once but couldn't move it --

I than attacked it from the engine wire harness hole.

Then a major tug of war to get it off....

Fortunately assembly was not the reverse of removal. It was much easier.

I made sure I aligned the clips in a way I could easily attach the spreader.

thanks for the picture tho -- as that helped me have the right game plan.
