2004 Cayenne Turbo - Vacuum T line at back of engine

Recommended Posts

It finally happened to me, I noticed the vacuum line at the back of my 04 CTT was completely loose and flopping around. Looked and found the T had separated at the top where it connects to the hard plastic line running to PCV. 

 

Has anyone successfully DIYed this job without removing the intake manifold? I chewed up my hands real bad trying to get the T apart. The rubber hoses are practically solid after so much heat cycling, there's no flexion left. I got a hose puller on them but they started disintegrating. I'm having a tough time even finding a DIY which presumes manifold removal. I'm worried about chewing up the hoses much more than they are already after my prying.

Best bet is to remove the manifold, I've had to remove mine a couple of times for the coolant pipes and coolant tee in the back. Even with my small hands it was a pain to get back there.

Yeah I ended up removing the manifold, that's the only way to do this job. Sadly it seems like all the big jobs involve removing the manifold and thus replacing all the gaskets. At least I'm getting better at it.
