    How to replace main breather hose on ETA : VIDEO

    I hope this video can be of assistance if you are replacing the breather hoses on your m119 engine.
    This video shows a trick when replacing the "infamous" breather hose on the ETA itself,which is located in a tight space,and seems abit "unreachable"

    Good video. Glad you were able to get the hose off without taking out the ETA. I couldn't get past prying my old hose off because it had turned into plastic. If I recall, I had to crush the hose to pieces with pliers once I got the ETA out.

    Re: How to replace main breather hose on ETA : VIDEO

    yes indeed.like i mentioned in the video..if the hose breaks off..and the clamp and end tip of the hose is still on the eta..i guess you will have to remove the ETA out of the car
    But one thing i forgot to mention in the video..was that it is important to twist the hose from side to side..so it will kinda break loose...then pry it off.

    Re: How to replace main breather hose on ETA : VIDEO

    Just curious, were you able to pry the hose off by hand or could you get a large screwdriver in there to separate it from the ETA?

    Re: How to replace main breather hose on ETA : VIDEO

    i was able to twist it from side to side..to loosen it in a way..and then i used a clip tool..(because of its great width)...and i pryed it off while giving the hose a twist from side to side..and it came straight off.
    If i think about it..i cant imagine they often get so bad that they actually break..but i guess it can happen.My hose was indeed VERY plastic like..but it had not broken in any way.

    Re: How to replace main breather hose on ETA : VIDEO

    Every one of these Ive ever removed pretty much shattered or broke long before it could be removed from the ETA in situ. If you get one out without having to remove the ETA along with the clamp, you are living right, for sure.

    This is certainly worth the effort if you have the tools available, however.

    That being said, I dont think pulling the ETA is that bad of a job myself. I can do it in about 15 minutes.

    Once you do it a few times, it's not bad. You learn the correct orientation to remove the ETA from between the intake runners. Just takes a bit of practice.

    Heh. That’s truly the “secret handshake” when it comes to that job. I’ve seen grown men nearly in tears trying to figure out how the ETA comes out of that opening. We should have a Guild that protects this kind of information to pass down to those who are worthy....

    Thanks Stephan,

    A nice informative video. I will be attempting that later this spring. I will be sure to try your method first and try not to bugger the hose up in the process.

    Take Care

    Re: How to replace main breather hose on ETA : VIDEO

    parts numbers for all the hoses.I personally recommend just replacing all of them,as they are important for the engine to run correctly.And at this stage in "age"..they are most likely all turned into plastic,and does not seal as they supposed to

    A1190947182 cam cover hose
    A1190945582 cam cover centre hose
    A1190944482 part of the hose that connects to the ETA
    A1020940212 x2 connectors for the above hoses

    The smaller breather hoses in no specific order.
    A1190942682 Hose after the Y connector hose
    A1190942782 Hose after the y connector hose
    A1190942882 Right cylinder bank hose
    A1190944082 Right cylinder bank hose
    A1190943182 Left cylinder bank hose
    A1190940312 x1 Y-connector hose that connects the left and right hand side hose section into one
    A1179901578 x4 connectors for the smaller breather hoses
    A1190940112 x1 connector

    oh thank you.im glad you liked it.yeah please report back.would love to hear how it goes.
    a final word...before prying the hose off..wiggle it to each side..to break it loose...then it should come off pretty easy without stressing it to much and risking breaking it appart

    How to replace main breather hose on ETA : VIDEO

    This sure works! (Could not wait till tomorrow ) Took me about 45 minutes including removing the mass airflow unit. The clamp for the unit was hard to reach.
    What i did was heat up the hoses with a heatgun before prying it loose. That works perfect. The old hose came of easy by prying it loose with the back of a plier.
    I secured the clamp in open position with a piece of steel wire, so you can easy guide your way down with the longnose plier and pull the wire out. Job done!

    Re: How to replace main breather hose on ETA : VIDEO

    What does the ETA hose connect into?

    the top part of the tube in my engine keeps coming disconnected, see pic.

    does anyone have the p/n for the top part or know how to replace it?

    It connects to the rear of the passenger side valve cover. There are 3 total hoses with 2 plastic connectors.

    That is not a factory setup... looks like someone added a piece of hose to patch them together! See attached pics.
