    Location of holder/clip near pass.side valve cover - 11787570482

    I hate having parts left over! A blown out plastic radiator tank on my E39 530i (same engine as our 330s) has led to a ton of "while we're in there"/preventative maintenance with the help of my mechanic buddy.

    While doing the valve cover & intake manifold gaskets & SAP vacuum line replacement I have two of metal these clips left over. The closed end looks like it's supposed to push into something! RealOEM says there are three required, so I wondered if anyone has a photo or good description of where these are supposed to reside. #10 in the diagram below. Thanks in advance!






    EDIT: Thanks to Vas, I found them - on the fuel rail to hold the oxygen sensor connectors in place. They are oriented vertically in small cutouts.

    Those look like the clips that sit on top of the fuel rail to hold down the oxygen sensor connectors.

    Thanks for your reply! I'll take a look. There are also 1 or 2 connectors in the vicinity of the SAP valve (#1 in the diagram) & the length of vacuum line (near the #3).

    Here is a picture of them attached to the fuel rail holding down the oxygen sensor connectors. This is on the e46
