Can anyone identify this hose for me?

I was replacing my intake boot and when I moved this hose it snapped off and I have no idea how to connect it back on. Any ideas or suggestions?

That's your break booster hose. (Vacuum hose). You can buy a new one. They're about 20-30 bucks.

how come i cant just reconnect it? do i need silicone or something to keep it in? it doesn't seem to snap in place? this is all i need to reassemble to finish the job. the intake boot is replaced and i just need to put everything else back in place. So this brake booster vacuum hose doesn't snap back on?


Basically my problem is on picture one, connecting to picture 3? It just sits on there, no snapping, or clicking.

It looks like that triangular head glues into the suction part that it came out off and the hose itself starts from that metal clamp to the other end's metal clamp.

So replacing the hose would be useless since the triangular part would not come with the hose and would still be broken off from that suction part.

Exactly. I found the hose but it doesn't contain the connector. http://www.fcpeuro.com/products/bmw-...46-34336751108 So yeah it's useless to replace the hose. Im trying to connect the suction to the connector (if that make sense)

It make sense. Try like a sealant glue.

Do this. Remove both pieces. Wash them in the kitchen sink with some dishwashing liquid and a toothbrush. Dry them. Put a small bead of JB Weld around the inside of the big piece. Be sure and don't get any on the two valve disks or around them because you don't want to restrict movement. Fit them together and put a piece of tape around them or a rubber band to hold them together while the JB Weld cures. Buy a new hose clamp for reattaching the small piece. Reinstall. A cheap repair that might last forever who knows. Worth trying.

If you're unable to get it back together and need a new one, I believe this is what you're looking for:

The connector is what BMW calls the "Sucking Jet Pump".

Spot on! Thank you for locating the part for me. I am skeptical about gluing it or trying to seal it. This is the brake booster were talking about. I'm going to buy this and replace it. I know it's a lot to ask but does anyone also know where I can buy several clips? I need the mass air flow metal clip. 2 of the firewall clips. One of the golden torque screws that mount near the filter cabin. Lol. Taking the car apart you tend to lose clips and screws? Anyone know where you can find these?

Just go to real oem http://www.realoem.com/bmw/select.do and put in your car information. Then you can browse through the parts catalog for anything you need. Once you've found the correct part, take the bmw part #from real oem and search for it on google or your favorite part seller's website.

Hi guys, I'm new on this forum. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide! Removing the heat shield I broke the suction jet pump from the brake boost hose. I'm trying to put it back but doesn't feel very tight. Any suggestion? Should I buy a new one? Is there any DIY video available to replace? Thanks
