Ok then, as I said in an earlier post, If you undo the 2 nuts & take the 2 bolts out from the diff that hold it into the sub frame, you will have more room to pop it back into place. In doing this the diff will hang a little lower with the axels resting on the exhaust pipe.



I just popped the rear breather cap off & drilled it out. It is either 8mm or 9mm


I then used some tubing with the same outside diameter & jammed it in untill it was about half way into the breather cap.


Then the tricky part...trying to get the breather cap back into the diff.
Just persevere with it, it just pushesback in (does not screw in)

Once this is done, just run the tubing to wherever you want to.
I ran mine up into the RHS strut cavity via the existing hole in the floor (on RHS of spare wheel well) & up into the rear quarter panel.


I hope that with the included pics, it now makes more sense.

Regards
Mr Turbo

You're not wrong about that mate. I had the rear one done in no time at all. Sinking a cold beer on a hot day would have taken longer I think.

Damien,

I'll still have to catch up and put those breathers on my car at some stage.

I think we need to organise a trip soon.

I haven't forgotten mate, it's just that I've been a little busy of late.
So with the Xmas holidays coming up (I've got 4 weeks off ) & with almost nothing planned in that time I'm sure we can organise to get them (breathers) done during that time.

Yes I agree.
