Anyone have pics of replacing the flexible part of the oil fill tube?

In removing my AOS on my 2001 Boxter, I cracked the flexible part of the oil fill tube. how do you access the clamp that holds it to the fill tube in the trunk?

I found this tricky too - In the end I managed to get at it with a pair of needle nosed mole grips, and a lot of patience

Here's an action shot



If you have a secondary air pump, you will need to remove it - I'm not sure how easy that is, as my car didn't have one



Getting the new hose on was also quite challenging - I used a good quality pair of locking flexible hose clamp pliers to hold the spring clamps open while I located each end, then released. You need to take a lot of care doing this, as the fill tube on the engine side is ridiculously fragile, and will break if you put too much force on it (I broke mine)

You could remove the engine wiring harness plug to gain access:

When I replaced my coolant reservoir, I was able to get the clamp by pulling back on the bulkhead pipe manifold and using one of those cable hose clamps. I replaced the rubber hoses as well, and used regular hose clamps on the engine side. (makes it easier to undo the reservoir hoses if they ever need it again.)
