They just tend to clog after enough time. And I don't know how good the previous owner was about oil changes.

Was it a bad job? I hope to do my own (someday) as I value my time at <$100/hr... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Any idea if there are any write-ups? I've seen some for an 850 (I believe), but wasn't sure if it was similar enough (which it probably is).

Basically you take off the intake and its there under neigh it.<p>Look in Vadis for removing the Intake, I don't think I have seen any right ups for the PCV box for the S60, But maybe theres one for a S70/V70, they are almost similar. <p>The job was not bad, There is one special tool to disconnect the fuel line, It was $16 from the dealer and I've used it a few times now. <p>A few of the bolts on the intake are kind of difficult, So make sure you have a few universal joints for your sockets and various size extensions.

Re: (Chilled Man)

I always use one of those rubber thingy's that you use to unscrew the tops of cans off with to get that oil filter cover off. It does take about 5 good minutes of good ol' elbow grease but it does the job. I think I'm just to lazy and cheap to buy one of the wrenches.
