Default 2000 Volvo S80 PCV System Maintenance

I have a 2000 Volvo S80 with 103,000 miles. My Owner's Manual for the car specifies the following servicing for the PCV system:

"The orifice nipple in the intake manifold and the filter at the end of the PCV hose in the air cleaner should be inspected at 60,000 miles and thereafter, at 30,000 mile intervals."

I have never serviced these items to-date. I think I have located the "orifice nipple". I cannot seem to locate the "filter" or what "PCV hose" the manual refers to. Can anyone help me locate these items? Does anything else need serviced on the PCV system?

Thanks in advance.

The Nipple is attached to the under side of the intake manifold by the alternator and power steering pump.

Not sure what filter they are referring to.
