CCV Question on 2005 545i

I am trying to replace my crankcase valve. The original one has a small hose connector on the black cover, but the new does not have the connector. It has the hole just like the old one but no connector. I cannot reuse the old black cover because a few of the tabs were broken when I tried to remove it.

Are there two part numbers and I got the wrong part , or do I just leave the hose loose?

Use RealOEM.com, input last 7 digits of cars VIN and drill down and locate/verify part no. For your specific car.

This one shows that it is for my car, but the image does not show hose connector. I looked up Viaco brand and the image show the hose connector with the same part number.

The instruction manual shows both black caps with an equal sign, but the installation shows to reconnect the hose. Picture is clear.

I found this thread and someone said to cap off at the throttle body. What should I use to cap it off? Paper, stuff any hard plastic thing?

Ok, I don't own this car/motor but apparently there was a 'redesign' in which the 'new' version cap you're working with is not longer needed to be connected via vac tube/line to the throttle body, thus no hose connection on this new style cap (I guess that hole in the newer style cap just 'vents' to atmosphere).

Now you have a 'loose end' of the hose you need to plug; so some kind of 'plug' that is maybe plastic that can be press-fit into the flexible hose would work well - perhaps you can locate something at a hardware store, plumbing section, etc. may have something suitable. This is under the hood, so whatever you use to 'plug' the hose it needs to be able to withstand high temperatures. Or, I suppose you could remove the hose at the throttle body and 'plug' or 'cap' that connection at the throttle body as an alternate method. Make sense?

Good Luck/Bill

Yes. Thank you for the suggestion and confirmation. I will find something rubberized like the hose material, and plug it at the throttle body intake.
