10 Minute Elephant Hose Installation


Parts list ($36.00 total):
1. $18.00 + shipping - CB Engineering CCV plug: http://cb-engineer.com/products/ccv-plug
2. $12.00 - 4 feet of 22mm or 7/8" ID silicone hose from eBay


1. Remove engine cover
2. Unplug CCV hose and remove red gasket.
3. Install CBE plug
4. Install silicone hose onto barbed end of the CCV hose heater. Find a hose clamp in garage and secure it.
5. Secure hose to something, route it into the frame and out of the frame, takes 3 seconds. You'll see what I mean, raising the car is not necessary. I will stuff it back into that hole for yearly inspections.

Notes: I have not trimmed the hose yet. Silicone hose gums up with heat and oil. I will update if too many fumes come into the windows.

Update: the amount of smoke that billows out of this hose is really funny. It doesn't smell horrible but I think my wife will eventually complain. I need to plan for plumbing to the exhaust.

Recycle Air Control Actuator Repair step by step

I found the little gear. You know, the one that falls down under the glove box. I didn't do anything about for about a year fearing a difficult job. One day while browsing this forum I found a fellow Jeeper with the same problem and various members chimed in to provide the solution.

I replaced the gear today and decided to post a step by step guide. You can download the PDF file or you can view it as a web page. Click the links below.

Special thanks to tleeming and others who have posted on this subject in other threads.

Antenna Replacement

Someone stole my antenna recently so I decided to make a step by step that shows how to replace it. It is pretty easy. In this DIY I am dealing only with replacement of the external antenna not the complete wire all the way back to the radio. Here it is. You can view it as a PDF or as a web page.
