Has any 451 (2008 year) owner replaced Bleeder valve (or PCV valve) in their Smart? If so, is there any informative link on DYI?

Much appreciated for your help

Yup. Easy to do. From the oil dipstick run your hand towards the front until you are touching the black thingy (intake manifold). You are halfway through. To the left of center, poke your finger straight down. There it is, that little bugger... Pull it up and forward to keep from snapping the end off. Replacement is exactly the opposite without the hand rubbing of the engine.... unless you are into that sort of thing. Not judging. ??

Chris Canon, so you were able to change out the pcv valve without lowering the engine?
Did the pcv valve come out easily without any tool?
Do you have the part# and place(link) you bought pcv valve?

Thanks

I literally just bought a pcv valve from O'Reilly's Auto Parts for like $2.50. it popped right out and I plugged the new one into the hose, then pushed it down until it snapped in. I bought a universal on for a 1/4" hose.
