Default PCV oil trap help!

Hey guys, ive been trying to get to the oil trap for the pcv system on a 2000 s80 T6 today, and i read on here that you have to take the alternator and that braket off. I have the power steering pump out and have been trying to get the alternator out but im stuck. I got the top left bolt (looking at engine from passenger side) but im assuming theres another one, i just cant find it. If you could let me know where they are it would be wonderful. Thank you!

There is 2 screws in the bottom of the Alternator. Actually they go through the A/C compressor. You will also have to loosen the bottom compressor bolts to get the Alt. out.

Do you mean the sensor in the big pipe that goes to an aluminum pipe?
If so slide a screwdriver between the aluminum pipe and rubber hose piece and break the seal then it should come off.

I'm talking about the plastic piping that comes out of the air filter housing, then splits in two, and the one on the right has a sensor of some sort coming out of the side of it, which is attached to some aluminum line. I can't get that sensor apart from the plasic piping so I cant move it out of the way. And thank you for the info on the alternator!

The aluminum pipe comes out of the valve. Like I said above use a screwdriver between the pipe and rubber to break the seal. Then slide it off.
The valve stays in the piping.
