I have no idea, I haven't done it either. It sounds like the answer is no.

You should be able to do it without removing the intake manifold, but it would be easier if you pull the intake manifold.

as other stated, it would be a PITA, be prepare to cuss and get cuts on your hands, and for someone with small hands I might add.

but it is do-able.

as for Seafoam, that's not going to help your PCV , pcv is a crankcase pressure ,

seafoam cleans the internal parts , a PCV is like $5 bucks , a can of seafoam is now $7 ?

Yeah I changed my spark plugs 3months ago. And that was a pain to do. I'm having trouble locating the exact location of our 6gen pcv? Anyone got a up close photo?
