E30 m40b18 icv hose location

Recommended Posts

Hi im new to the forum, have recently picked up a 318i e30 1990 with a m40b18 in it. engine was in bits when i bought it and am having a bit of trouble finding where the hose goes from the bottom of the icv. Im new to cars and bought this one to tinker around on to get my skills up. any help would be great

Should join onto the intake boot, probably a right angle fitting or something which provides the link between the 2

Im thinking it goes onto the rubber boot but maybe im missing a piece? the orientation seems like it either doesnt go there or im missing something, if anyone has a m40 engine it would be great if you could post a pic with this hose in it

Have a look at the ETK: https://bimmercat.com/bmw/en/search/selectCar/E30/4-T/BMW+318i+M40/ECE/13_1330

It appears the ICV connects directly to the manifold at the back, and the hose has a right angle barbed fitting that seems to be missing as @Eagle mentioned. Maybe the intake elbow is the wrong one for your car and is therefore missing the inlet for the hose?
