Before the parts person can find the part number for that hose, he has
to know what it does. If he doesn't know what it does, he should ask
someone to help him. You can help him out by telling him that it is
shown on the page with the crankcase ventilation system. If the elbow
is the same as the one on my 98 V70 T5, then the part number is 9155862.
