PN is 13907831770. Realoem.com says it's $82 but dealer told me $104. I have a business account with my dealer so I get a discount and only paid $77. I don't know about other vendors. Good luck man and report back in case anyone else needs help with this code.

Excuse the Iphone photos ... I took some pics in case someone else has this issue. It literally only took 25 minutes start to finish.

It helps to unclip the wire and pull out the plastic fastener holding it to the bracket. Then you can almost pull the hold valve out 6 inches for better access to hoses. One of the hoses slip off and the other has a sort of push to release feature.
Very easy!

Default Re: Purge Control Valve? P0444? DIY?

Hey guys,

I replaced mine this morning. Wasn't too bad. Took about half an hour total.

Once you remove the air intake, you can see it a few inches back. It wasn't impossible to get to, but it isn't right there, either. I couldn't see where it was until I used my phone's light to find it. Anyway, it's just hanging there on a flat hook. You can push it backwards to remove and then it is connected by 3 things: Electrical connection and two hoses.

The electrical connection is in the back and you'll want to pry the metal retainer clip up with a screwdriver in order to release it.

The lower hose is removable by pressing in the plastic "C" ring to expand the fastener, just as our boy Bullsh%tkorner demonstrated. The larger hose that is closest to you can be pulled off by rotating the purge control valve while you pull.

I tried to upload some pics and a video, but I couldn't, so here are the links to my Google Drive. I kept getting a fatal error from the forum's server. Hope the links work. Best of luck. This is definitely a job a novice can do with a little patience and a few simple tools.

Hey all,

I replaced mine yesterday and when I pried up on the metal retainer that holds the electrical connection it flew off and ricocheted around the engine bay and off into oblivion.

I pushed that connector back on as firmly as possible, but was wondering if that clip is really necessary or not. I can't see that connector coming loose, but wanted to check here and see if I needed to find a new clip or not.

Thanks!
