The air pipe.. or whatever it's called, on my car needs to be replaced. It's in bad shape. It connects to the plastic cover on top of the radiator and I think it leads to the alternator (not sure..). Anybody know exactly what it's called, or where I can find it? I'm attaching a (crummy) picture of what it is, recognize it?

Hold on everyone is missing the MOST important thing here....
Do you have a 4 cyl (318ic) or 6 cyl (325ic)! That would determine what piece you need.

I bought that, shipped overnight. Hopefully it's here soon, mine is totally wasted.

Can you guys think of any temporary thing to put there until it arrives so I can drive?

*EDIT* Actually, doesn't seem like it's too vital of a part, so I should be able to just drive it with nothing there..

yeah that piece isn't too important really. you could just tape it up and put it back where it was and you'd be fine. but yeah, i wouldn't worry about any problems from driving without it, i mean, its only purpose is to direct air-flow...

bitcore will become famous soon enough bitcore will become famous soon enough
CAUTION: ganjacide was being sarcastic!
Your alternator produces a fair ammount of heat and it must be cooled! You need to replace this part very soon, if anything, tape it back together so it can at least get the cool air that it NEEDS if you HAVE to drive somewhere.

Alternator failure is usually not noticed untill it's too late and your car will not start because the voltage on the 12V battery is somewhere around 6v when your stranded in the middle of nowhere.

I'm only driving to and from school tomorrow, and it's gonna be here tomorrow, so I'll pop it in when it gets here and that'll be that.

Plus, it's cold out..
