Can anyone tell me what this pipe is please ?

Asked by May 23, 2016 at 09:21 AM about the 2005 BMW 3 Series 320d

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have noticed a large pipe from engine to I am guessing the radiator has
become loose and struggled to reconnect it back. I think it has worn out and I
will need to get a replacement. I would appreciate if someone can advise me

Can you get a picture of the engine bay? Trying to see where that pipe goes to. I have a 330i and that part isn't used in the engine bay in the states. Looks to me like it a hose part of the air intake.

It's probably the intercooler, not the radiator. Being a diesel, I think that is a turbocharged engine. That hose likely an intake hose.
