323 vent hose connection

I'm helping a guy in SC on a 2000 323i it has a vent hose none of my e46's had running along the fuel rail. It went down under the intake - I suspect this might have been attached to the CCV where mine were capped - Can anyone confirm where this hose attaches under the intake?

Thanks

You are correct. On the early engines with the FPR on the front of the fuel rail, the hose connects to the small nipple on the CCV body after it connect to the small metal pipe that is attached to the fuel rail. The metal pipe just cleans things up a bit.

BTW, are you down South now? That water is taking FOREVER to recede.

Hope your cars did not get flooded.

Thanks James. Can't get in yet. Tomorrow will be the first time since the Hurricane. Pretty sure the e90 is toast as the water level was higher than last year.

Yup, goes to a nipple on side of the CV valve. Used on M52t not used on M54's.
