Hi folks - my catch can arrived but I'm not sure where the pipes/tubes fit to the engine! :roll:

I've done some searching and found a lot of posts but I'm after an 'idiots' guide with photos so I don't muck it up, please.

I'm not too bothered about photos of the fitment of the can - just where I should 'access' the air system. Any help would be, as always, appreciated.

Thanks

Bloggsy

Thanks Truck Driver - I had seen these 2 posts but unfortunately the first thread's picture had the engine cover still on so I can't see where the pipe is connected to the engine.

The second thread talks about the PCV so I've been trying to find that hose!

Hi bloggsy
Remove the engine top cover – 4 push in-plugs underneath Just run your fingers around underneath until you find them then pull upwards gently
You will see a pipe running from the top of the camshaft cover to the air box. Remove this pipe and replace with the two pipes going to the oil catch can. One pipe to the air box, one pipe to the top of the can cover.
Don't use the clear pipes which come with the catch can, buy some 15mm id nitrile rubber tube, you will need about 2 to 3 metres if you want to mount the catch can on the wing or front

There is a how to on the Australian xtrail website which you can download.
Best regards
Milton :thumbs:

Fantastic! :bow:

Thank you very much Milton. Just to clarify, is it the pipe that goes to the round plastic part on top of the engine?

Thanks again Milton - I took off that pipe at the engine end and found a couple of drips of oil so this can should help :biggrin:

I'll hopefully get this fitted next week when I have some free time. I'll post a PIC then.

The PCV is on the Petrol model and doesn't apply to your diesel.
Keep scrolling down to the T31 section and look for the Provent fitting DIY. Although your catchcan is different, the Provent does the same job but better and the 2 hoses will still attach the same way.
When you have the document open, scroll down until you find the picture with the hose marked "remove this hose" and that will be what you are looking for. The following pics in that document will show you how to run the new hoses.

this give a good discription of the pipes,
