Post #78 of this thread came in handy today to help this newbie today identify the purge valve:

One of the hoses goes towards the drivers side and attaches near the drivers side fender.

It's the other hose attachment points towards the passenger side - I need to know where this hose attaches to on the other end.

Any help would be appreciated! This is on a 2000 323i.
