Mein Auto: 2001 BMW X5 4.4i
Fuel Line issue

on the X5 4.4i there is a black hose that snaps onto the metal fuel lines. It is on the right side of the engine at the back of the engine as you face it and it is about 15 - 18 inches in length. It connects the fuel from the silver metal line to the engine.

It is a snap on line on both ends. What is the part number or correct name for this? Mine failed and was spraying fuel but I have manage to zip tie it so it works with no leaks but I want to replace it. I just do not know what it is called..........

You could try Max at oembimmerparts.com This is likely a dealer-only part.
Check realoem.com for the part number. If you just need the clip on the end of the line, they're available at Advance Auto, or even Amazon.com.
