    Planning a CCV replacement...

    Although I have read that it's possible to do without removing the intake, I am leaning toward removal. Either way, any helpful tips or suggested items for replacement would be appreciated. Looking at using the kit from Bav. which includes the associated hoses. (Obviously I'll replace the I.M. gasket also...)

    Thanks,
    Greg

    Greg,

    I don't know if your 2000 528i is different than my 1996-97 528i, but once I got the intake box out, and everything off up to the throttle body, I was able to reach in there and get the CCV out, without taking off the intake manifold. You know, those CCVs are super easy to clean out, if they are only junked up, I figured that out just by disconnecting the vanos line that runs to it, and then disconnecting the other side and running throttle body cleaner through it. No disconnection was necessary (but I did it anyway just because), and the black junk ran like crazy until pure, clean fluid came out.

    Re: Planning a CCV replacement...

    I replaced the CCV and all hoses on my '99 528i a few months ago. Keep in mind that the CCV replacement procedure is very different between the M52 and the M52TU motors (you have the latter). I didn't have to remove the intake but the space was very tight. Overall, it wasn't to hard to do but be prepared to replace other misc components along the way (such as vacuum tubes, fasteners, etc.) Google this text string "diy oil separtor, disa, icv" and you'll find an excellent write up.
    Good luck!
