Evap purge valve location

Post by jroma » Wed Feb 06, 2019 1:57 pm

I am attempting to replace the evap purge valve on a 2004 xc90 t6 awd. Being a very visual person, I was wondering if anyone had an actual photo of the location. I've seen many drawings and I have never been very good at determining location from them. It's not on my fan shroud as many of the diagrams show. Again a picture would be extremely helpful.

Okay ladies and gents. It took a lot of digging around but I finally found it. For those of you having the same problem with the first gen XC90 s T6 all wheel drive and finding this purge valve this is where it's at. Remove the engine cover and all related tubing on the top of the car, kind of like if you were trying to replace the spark plugs. Go in through the driver side and look beneath the intake manifold. If you shine a light between the Middle piping you should be able to see the valve on a metal hook that attaches to the rubber piece on the valve. The electrical connector should be on the left side the hard line is on the bottom and a soft vacuum hose on the right. It's kind of difficult to get this taken apart since you can only really fit one hand in there and if it's old like mine those parts have never been moved and take a little more coaxing. I'll try and post a picture so you see what I'm talking about

The line diagram was not overly helpful and I figured there were other outside who just need to actually see. Glad I could clear that up.
