Purge valve

Is it possible just to replace valve and not entire purge line 996-110-129-06. With something like Bosch 0280142308, Amazon.com: Bosch 0280142308 Purge Valve: Automotive

This is great question. If it does work you can save a lot of money.

I'm guessing I'm right

Do tell!
What did you use to connect the new valve to the hard plastic line?

Barbed union for 3/8 nylon fuel line, 5/16 rubber fuel line piece. Apparently you need to remove purge valve assembly before (I managed to do without intake unbolting). Next time the valve can be replaced much faster. I have clamps from both ends.

Thank you!
I haven't had a problem with the valve to date but this is certainly good info for future reference.

FTP: you wrote that you installed (5/16 or 3/8..?) rubber fuel line.

Please note that you MUST use the appropriate "Metric sized Fuel Injected Rated" fuel hose, otherwise the SAE sized fuel hose will eventually fail and you will end with a high fire hazard

I am not sure the diameter but on the Alfa Romeo & Fiat (Bosch FI) the fuel hose is a 7.5mm diameter

3/8 and 10mm (9(9.5?)mm inner) nylon fuel line is almos the same. your choice. i simply used overcounter napa parts. 5/16 just snags better. this is not fuel, this is fuel vapor and very thin (50 psi fuel injection? c'mon, we are talking vacuum here). i doubt it has any hazzard or it will detoriorate rapidly. it is mostly fresh air. sure thing "metric" is better but with clamps it's no different imho
