Just when i thought i had a slightly more reliable bmw...

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Just went to install a bms occ on my 2013 335i. Barely touching the vent hose tabs broke 3 of them immediately. Then when i went to turn the hose an unsatisfying crunch from that... all the while i gently touched that little coolant return hose aaaand snap that went also.

The kicker to this is the catch can doesn't even fit where it's supposed to. Now i have multiple broken parts and no benefit....


I figured at some point things would get brittle but not after just 6 years. I thought i was done with this stuff after my e46.

Am i gonna have a problem with the pcv hose only having one tab now?

You might be ok, but if you want to replace the hose here's the part #

It's not just time, it heat cycles. These cars run hot. I'm not really sure what you broke off but hopefully, you can replace it cheaply and easily. I think I have created more damage with mods than anything. All we can do is live and learn....
