Chargepipe install question n55

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I am in the process of installing my new charge pipe on my N55. How tight should the hose clamps be? I am worried about over/undertightening. Also, the washer is in place but the side that is held down by the c-clamp appears to have some flexibility. Does this all sound normal?

1. I would tighten those clamps. Not tight enough that it looks like it is digging into the part / bending what its holding.

2. Pretty normal. First I felt the flexibility but when I tugged, it moved. So I had to re-seat it. Second time when I installed my c-clamp side, i felt some flexibility. I tried tugging on it with some force and it didn't move.
