BTW Your BMW should not have any GREEN antifreeze coolant in there. I had a mechanic accidentally flood my coolant tank with the nasty green stuff and it almost fcuked up my hoses, if I left it in. Replace any green stuff via a full coolant flush and use BMW factory antifreeze coolant (its ice-blue in color and much nicer when you touch it....lol!!!!)

He pulled the wrong hose off the engine I guess. thinking it was a vacuum line. Should be ok when he puts it back
