Anyone replace PCV valve?

Has anyone replaced the PCV VAlve on a 2017 Mazda 3 2.5l? I read you had to remove the throttle body,intake manifold and some wiring but I can get a hand on it just by taking the start out. But not sure if it is good enough to take it out that way. Anyone?

Haven't touched it on our 2016 CX5 with 117K miles. Our car is still running fine. I would have cleaned or replaced it by now except for what you posted.
