The installation of this oil separator is actually going to be really easy. You don't need to put the car up in the air. You don't need a lift or jack stands, but the first thing we have to do is take the headlight out. Remove the two T30 bolts securing in the headlight. You also need to remove this Phillips head clip. Push back on the headlight. Disconnect the electrical connector, and remove the headlight.
Mishimoto does include a new nut and bolt to mount the bracket, but we tried to remove our nuts and bolts, it was so incredibly tight that the nuts just stripped and we couldn't remove them, but there were enough studs left on the bolt that we just threaded the Mishimoto nut onto that to secure the bracket. Slide this bracket over the studs, and thread on the supplied nuts. You can now assemble the catch can itself. Take both supplied parts, and thread it into the holes. These are tapered threads, so they're not going to seat all the way when they get tight.
Grab yourself an 11/16 wrench and tighten them up. Once again, these probably are not going to seat all the way when they're tight, and you don't want to make them too tight because you don't want to break the fittings. They are plastic. The barbs are nice and tight. This can now go on the bracket. Install the catch can onto the bracket. Line it up with the holes, and thread the supplied hardware. Now we still have to attach the hoses, so you don't need to make this super tight just yet, and it is slightly adjustable. Now we can install the hoses.
We will now be replacing this PCV hose right here with Mishimoto hose. Simply pinch this connector here, and pinch this one on the sides as well. Then use a screwdriver or a trim removal tool to remove the clip, and remove the hose. There are 2 separate hoses, and they have their own place to go. The hose with 2 bends goes up top, and the hose with 1 bend goes down bottom. Put a hose clamp on each hose, and slide it onto the catch can. Simply clip it into the factory connector. There we go, and now the top hose. Tighten up each clamp with either a 7mm socket or a flat head screwdriver. Tighten the hex bolts on top of the catch can.
Now that the catch can is completely installed, we can reinstall the headlight. Reinstall the 2 bolts that secure the headlight. Reinstall the clip, reconnect the headlight, and you're installation's finished. Our Mishimoto oil separator is installed. It's going to keep this Fiesta ST running stronger for longer. Installation should take about 30 minutes, and before you know it you'll be heading down the road.
