Good afternoon guys,

I was currently removing my intake mainfold when these two plastic fittings appeared. I don’t know what they’re used for, let alone where they belong. Can anyone bestow some knowledge upon me? Please and thank you

Does the other one say "L" and is it a hollow tube? A T fitting?

Not familiar looking to me--

realoem.com might help

...and since you're new, so will newtis.info and fcpeuro if you didn't know.

Good luck.
Hey Dmax, both of them have “R” on them. I’m not sure where they came from either tbh

I can't name it but it goes in the bottom side of your intake next to mounting stud holes .

When you removed the intake gasket they came out. Just put them back before re assembly.
Sorry for the duplicate picture. If you can zoom in on the holes next to the studs you will see what I mean . it was a few years ago when I had this one apart don't remember what they were for.
Good luck

They're for the CCV return passageways, the extra holes on the intake side of the head.

Is this M54B30? I did mine a few months back and do not remember seeing them at all. Now I'm worried. Can you post a pic when you put them in please?

They are located at the 2' oclock and 10' positions around each port. They will pop out on their own, so definitely need to keep track of them.

I’m going to remove the intake manifold today and put it back on thoroughly. I will keep everyone posted on progress.

If I'm allowed to ponder, I think they are control flow orifices for the CCV system. (Restrictors) Possibly leading to weird hard to diagnose engine codes if left out.
Never tried, nor intend to.....
