Suggest you post to the Bimmerfest diesel Forum. Very few d's in the US, and almost none discussed on this Forum.

Good luck.

Pretty sure that is the vacuum line for the EVAP system. Goes from intake to check valve.

May also be for the SAP system

Ok. Evap ? Is that for the air con? As air con not working is on my list to do.
I've googled it but can't find anything showing a pipe for evap or air con around there
This box is a small black unit next to the glow plug relay with a vacuum pipe coming from the main pipe (the one that has 4 outlets next to each other) . Then this loose pipe coming out of that.
Unfortunately its hard to see with the inlet manifold in place or it would be easy to get help to trace.

Evaporative system is responsible for venting excess fuel vapors from your fuel system and reinjecting them into the intake stream to burn off properly.
