FYI: My malfuctioning CCV sound like someone is squeezing a goose under the hood every time I tap the throttle

on the E46 it's not that simple. I've attempted to do this CCV replacement before. You have to remove alot of parts to get to it on E46 including the throttle body. From what I gather on this forum, you're better off paying a mechanic to do it.

I did mine in November. It's not that bad. Just have to have patience.

Actually, I have to do it again this weekend. I neglected to replace one of the hoses. It all has to come out to do it. Le sigh...
