How do you replace the PCV nipple in a 1999 9-3 SE?

Here's a picture of what I'm talking about in case I'm using the wrong name for it. It's labeled with a b.

Here's another picture for clarity.

It cracked in the past. My mechanic used some epoxy to seal the crack. Now the smaller tube has broken off. The vacuum hose cant stay connected. I smell exhaust when I'm idling, but not when I'm moving. From what I've read so far, I think I'm smelling blow-by coming out of the crankcase.

I'd like to replace the nipple. What's the part number? How do I replace it?

Just pull it out and push the new one in. Its only held in with a rubber grommet.

Probably not the source of your exhaust smell though.

Replaced! Thanks for the info. If this didn't fix the exhaust smell problem, I'll make a new thread and edit in a link to it here.
