Head cover hose that connect to the oil separator.

Whats the name of this hose and is it hard to replace?

Item #2? You might get some lean codes, or an oil leak if you have a lot of blow by.

where is it broken on the hose? Is it slightly cracked or wide open? If its cracked quite bad, you'll have lean codes and misfires coming out your a**. I wouldn't recommend driving it, but if its barely cracked you could try duct tape? If it's broken where it connects on either end you are probably out of luck I wouldn't take my chances. Just get a new hose and DIY. Its not hard nor expensive, just a pain in the butt- just tedious and time consuming working in a confined space. I recommend you replace all hoses and CCV unit while you are there, along with a few other routine parts as mentioned in other CCV/oil separator threads.

Invest the 30$ before you drive it. I would honestly just replace the whole system since you'll need to remove a lot of **** to get to it and it's not much more to get the whole kit http://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E46-328...tor/ES2550214/
