r56 valve cover hose

The hose on the valve cover that connects to intake air duct I have noticed has no clip on it to secure it, will this have any affect on the running of the car.... Regards

yes if ts leaving its part of pcv valve breather these were updated after 2010 with solid pipe ones before this they always crack and snap where you cannot see it involves removing the inlet manifold to access the bottom pipe fitting to remove and check them, the early ones barely last 5 years as plastic cracks from the heat,, new pipe is 29 from ocean bmw the last one i had, this pipe should be sealed, if you when can on idle remove the oil filler cap and it has not much effect on the running then chances are this pipe is at fault, but still worth checking anyway
