I just have my new TCV from IPD along with some new tubing.

I can visualise the whole job except for the vacuum line that runs down under the turbo somewhere.

Are there any tricks to accessing this hose? Should I approach from the top or jack-up the car and reach in from underneath?

Re: Best Way to Access TCV Vacuum Line on Turbo (SML)

I have new vacumn lines sitting in my garage. I opened the hood saw what a PIA it was going to be to replace them and am currently deep in procrastination mode.

Let me know how it goes for you, maybe I can become motivated to do mine.............

Which line are you talking about?
The one that runs into the turbo body. I can't even see it where it runs through from the top. And I couldn't find a way to access it from the top. Do I have to look access from under the car?

I found it easiest to access these from underneath the car. I used long, angled needle nose pliers to work the clamps.

Wow .. finally got the job finished! I will post my general tips & comments in the other thread.

But for my specific thread question ... the access is much easier from under the car.

The angled needle nose pliers would have been very helpful to both push the tube on and work the clamps. I struggled along with standard needle nose pliers.
