Replacing oil filler tube?

Recommended Posts

Going through my 996 Carrera that I recently purchased and taking care of some maintenance items on the car. While changing out the serpentine belt I noticed that the oil filler tube had a crack in the flexible portion on the tube, needs replacement. Unfortunately it looks as though the alternator will need to be pulled out to get to the two bolts that hold the other end of the filler tube to the top of the engine block. Curious if any members have had to replace their filler tube as well.

Went through my Bentley 996 service manual and they goes as far as removing the left side intake manifold to get the alternator out of the car, seems a little extreme to me. Any comments?

Removing the alternator and throttle body are sufficient, then there is room to manipulate the two Torkx screws. Dont forget to disconnect the battery, and after assembly, relearning throttle body, windows, radio, etc.
