Went to install DV+ on my ride and it seems factory valve can't be disassembled. Anyone else with a 2018 that has done this? GFB indicates good for my year but maybe I got the 19+ valve.
Brilliant! i'll be using your method too if the need arises .. so thank you back. i watched videos of people using channel locks and breaking that piece so i improved their idea BUT your idea is even smarter.... I sinched a cable tie down snug and then rotated it backwards like a strap wrench. Rotated and pulled lightly and it eventually came out. Test drive proves its working as designed.
yep, ive tried rubber band (unsuccessfully) -- i remembered, or forgotten, that way back when i installed the $50 bov (briefly) that i used ~8" piece of duct tape that i folded over onto itself so it was ~1/4" wide and wrapped it around. that worked best w/ channel locks bc it was cushiony and grippy.You're welcome. The tie I used was on the threshold of slipping so the glove was on standby in case more friction was needed. A rubber band may work too.
