This was a question I had too. Do you just hand tighten?

Also, do you need any locktite on the CPV?

Last question, does this have to be done during an oil change? If I just take out the CPV will oil start gushing out? (Sorry if this is a noob question, just started doing my own car repairs)

Just hand tight. If there's a torque spec, I've never seen it.
No loctite.
You can do it with oil in the car (I did). Some oil will run out, but nothing that a paper towel can't handle.

Thanks, I plan on doing this when I change out the cooling system next month. About to hit 100k and I want her to last another 100k!

Thanks, I figured it couldn't be in there too tight. I Just figured since some folks are saying they are tearing them up when they pull them out, that maybe there was some torque on them. "Tech tight" works for me.

The dealer CPO'ed it? i was told thats not covered by the CPO from my dealer... and they quoted me 1400 to repair it. Thankfully i took care of it when i installed my headers.

Irvine BMW wanted $55 for the CPV and stated that retail was $73...

Default Re: DIY: CPV valve

i was told you can simply replace the washer instead of the whole nut/screw/valve assembly - is this true? I replaced the whole thing when i did mine however my friend said he believed you can just remove the old metal washer and install a new one, i cant remember if that was the case or not. From the picture its hard to tell...
