So our new-to-us CRV was said to use some oil. Haven't had long enough to verify that, but what the heck, I figured I might as well check the PCV valve--I don't recall it showing up on the service receipts, so maybe it's time (17 years and 160k on who knows what dealership oil). Took a look at one video and looked easy, and... went out and realized that I had watched the wrong one. If you look below you can see how much of a pain this one is.

My question is, for those who have done it, is this just the way it is, or is there some trick that makes this a 5 minute job? If this is just the way it is I'll order the valve and replace it--for the amount of effort it takes I'd rather not do it twice!

I did mine when I had to replace the radiator and thermostat. The other option is to do it when replacing the serpentine belt and tensioner but never done it this way myself.

Often times the tabs on the hose clamp pliers are pointing downwards. I used one of these:

Reach around and below the hose to get to the clamp tabs. I initially thought about reinstalling with the tabs facing upwards; however, that was actually harder to do, so I put the clamp back facing downwards.
