Replacing cracked charge pipe, will code clear?

Just recently took delivery on a 2011 135i. Things went great for the first 2 days. Today I took my wife for a ride. Accelerating out of a turn the car bogged suddenly and it threw a half engine light followed by the service engine soon warning.

Took a quick look a the charge pipe and it blew completely free on the engine side. The bracket holding the c-clip appears to have completely blown apart. So that's my obvious issue. Just looking at pipe I can understand why people call this out as being one of the weakest links on the car. The plastic appears to be very brittle and extremely low quality.

Given that the car only has an exhaust and intake it's not something I want to deal with in the future. That said I ordered a Cobb pipe this afternoon. They managed to get it out for overnight Saturday 30 mins prior to them closing.

So my question is this. I'm plannig to swap the pipe tomorrow. Can I expect the code to clear itself or do I need to dink around with the stealership?

stop by an autozone/advance auto and have them clear the code (free)

Okay I thought I read in another thread here that these vacuum boost bmw codes required a special tool from the dealer. If that's not the case I have an Actron 9575 scanner. I'll give it a shot.

I just sorta ran into this today. I installed the Cobb charge pipe but the silicone pipe that attaches to the charge blew off. I got the same message you did. Reconnected it and the codes cleared by them selfs right away. Just and FYI..

Yeah I just hooked up my scanner and it cleared them. I should've tried that right off the bat but just assumed that the other post I read was legit. Although it did seem strange that bmw would have some unique cel that a regular scanner wouldn't clear.

How tight did you have to go to keep it from blowing off?
