Hey all...

Checked the DIY and a search but could not find anything useful. Been throwing a P1124 after replacing the AOS bellows (no leak confirmed) and oil change. So I started with what I took apart. To make sure it wasn't the AOS I pulled the airbox to check for oil in the intake etc (no oil to speak of). Upon removal I un-clipped the oil filler tube from the airbox and the cap portion came right off the plastic tubing that connects to the oil filler pipe. Nothing broke or cracked (at least that's what I think) but the problem I'm having is connecting the two back together. The cap portion has a big lip on it and seems impossible for it to fit back into the ribbed tubing without breaking it. Or do I have it wrong how the two connect?

Good thing is, it was very loose and was leaking thus most likely causing the P1124 code.

Never mind... I'm screwed. Looking at it a bit further, it cracked and broke right where the solid plastic portion meets the ribbed tubing. Is the ribbed tubing portion replaceable? Or does the whole assembly have to be replaced?

I changed my water pump, and during re-assembly of the parts, my tube cracked. After reading the post, I decided to take it to my mechanic. He told me it would take a couple of hours, but that I could do it myself. He told me to remove the alternator, and be patient removing and re-installing the back screw. I ordered the tube and oil ring, and replaced the tube with no problem. It did take some time to remove the back screw.
