Hi Lenderhosen, well I see the hose on the n60 diagram is completely different than what***8217;s on my n62. It being discontinued would explain why I can***8217;t find it anywhere online.

If you go to that site and input your own VIN, then search for that part you should find its replacement number.
Parts get discontinued all the time.

Just like wcr3d said, go to RealOEM.com browse to your car / engine configuration or enter the last 8 digits of your VIN. I love this website and it drives my local dealer crazy. Apparently it's not their business model to sell replacement parts. They prefer for me to enjoy a Cappuccino as I take a taxi to work and let them fix my car for a completely reasonable price. Fair enough, now I just order my parts direct online.

Is this it? https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/bmw-radiator-coolant-hose-545i-645ci-17127519248-17127519249

Go to fcpeuro, enter the make and model, then search for "coolant hose"
It is if you are looking for this particular radiator hose. The original question in this thread with photo is inquiring about a vacuum hose that pulls vacuum (and sometimes oil) from each valve cover into the intake manifold. The part is discontinued, replacement is two separate hoses. If you are wondering if you fall into the sometimes oil category just loosen the hose clamp on the throttle body, open the throttle body and have a look with a flash light. You will see puddles of oil, precursor to valve seal service.

Here are the fcpeuro links:

Sorry about that. I should have paid more attention. For some reason, I jumped the gun into thinking that it was a coolant hose.
