    Thanks, thats what i thought it was but had an argument with my friend, he was insisting that it was next to the DV valve. I will show him this post:)

    Thanks, John im just replacing that tube correct, not the entire valve. If its just the tube it looks like a 2 minute job tops.

    Sorry to bring this post back but I am suspecting mine needs to be replaced too. I have a CEL and noticed a 1500 rpm idle... I havn't looked under the hood as of yet. Will be doing that today.

    Phil, sorry to revive an old thread but what is that disregarded thing pointed to by the red arrow on the left? Mine is pulsing in and out and rattling but have no idea what it is or the thing its connected too - just got my car a few weeks ago.

    My suggestion was to look into getting rid of it completly as it causes a lot of problems. I understand that I went of track but figured if he is asking this type of question he might look into it a little further. Too many people on here trolling I guess thats what got to me, every other post is "use the search button" If I add a comment and it helps eliminate a future problem I dont need a smart ass comment coming back. Think outside the box once in a while.


    PCV Valve removed and CC installed :) for those that care

    For future reference, doesn't Audi of America have an extended warranty on the PCV? I got a free replacement with the latest revision from my local Audi dealer. They did several other replacements free of charge as well, all I did was take it in for an oil change before I got my kit to do it at home. Glad I went to them that time!
