Got a new BPV which i'm looking to fit at the weekend. Looks fairly simple in principle but maybe a bit of a ball ache to get to?

Anyone got any advice when fitting it? Or has anyone made a guide? :thumbup:

yea stock up on jubilee clips.
need
30torx for ic clamps,
7mm socket,
8mm socket,
10mm socket,
11mm socket and spanner,
pliers
flat screwdriver
and maybe a pozi screwdriver just for good measure
1/4 ratchet set makes access real easy
and a cheeky bit of spray lube like wd40 makes slipping all the pipes into each other much eaiser
hope this helps
