Default 97 camry EGR VSV


How do I access the VSV on a 97 Camry. I know where it is located, but
I can't figure out how to get to it?

BWAAAHAAAHAAHAAHAAHAAA!

Back in the mid 90's there was a development engineer who must have
caught his wife cheating on him or something, because he came to work so
pissed off he decided to bury the EGR VSV in such a place as to make it as
accessible as a game of beer pong with the pope.
So anyway, there are a few different routes you can go. If you have a
decent compliment of hand tools you can experiment with different
combinations of a 12mm socket and various extensions until you find one
that hits. The method I have used for years is one deep 12mm Snapon swivel
socket on a 3/8 Ingersol Rand air impact. That sucker fits in there
perfectly through the wheel well, only takes a few minutes.
The other option is to just put the vacuum hoses on the new valve, plug
it in, and find some place to zip-tie in there. Its not the most elegant
solution, but if you tie it in there tight you'll probably be okay. I've
seen that done more than once.
Good luck!

Jack the car up.Block it accordingly and remove the right wheel.
With the engine cold run your hand kind of up between the fire wall and the
engine. The VSV is hiding up there. When you feel a rectangular thing with
two vacuum hoses and an electical connector thats it.
I was lucky,the bolt was not on very tight and a socket with extention and
swivel broke it loose.
I relocated the new valve about five inches higher where there was an empty
threaded hole. Wonder if that was the intended mounting spot since now it
can be accesed from the top.
Good luck....
