Mb 190e

Asked by Jan 16, 2016 at 09:04 AM about the 1988 Mercedes-Benz 190-Class 190E 2.6 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hey! On my 190e, the main hose that
connects to the top of the air filter
connects to the value cover, there is a
small secondary hose that breaks off and
runs underneath the airfilter housing. Mine
has become brittle and snapped. Any idea
where it goes, what it's for and if it's worth

1 Answer


Most probably part of the Crankcase ventilation system, called a breather hose. Of course it's important, why wouldn't it? If one is broken, you probably have a check engine light. I order all my Euro parts from here.....https://www.fcpeuro.com/Mercedes~Benz- parts/190E?year=1988&e=608&m=847&keywords=hose
