Thread: Part number sleuths, I need your help!

    Part number sleuths, I need your help!

    One of the clips on my microfilter housing cover will not clip in. It appears that the white piece that it locks into is gone.

    Upon looking at RealOEM, it doesn't list a part number. I only see the spring clip itself (#8). I don't want to buy a whole microfilter housing just to get the part that it locks in to.


    http://realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?...47&hg=64&fg=10

    The spring lock I'm talking about is #64318385244


    The part I'm talking about is the white hole that the clip attaches to.


    Any ideas on what the part number is would be great.

    Dental cement, hot glue or epoxy in the hole with Dremel tool action, and voila, a new lock for the clip.

    Holy Crap, I'm right now looking for the same thing.

    That white "socket" is melted into the housing from underneath, so none of the other various parts seem work (e.g. the battery cover fastener)

    http://data.bmrparts.com/bmwparts/BM...11000004U.html

    ABB has been the supplier to BMW for microfilter housing parts, so BMW might not ever lay eyes upon the fastener socket.

    I find it odd if they're molded in.. I mean mine is completely gone! Yes, I too have thought about using one from the battery cover.. Probably doesn't fit, huh?

    Glad to see that I'm not the only one out there with this problem.

    I'll just have to find a used one at some point or just remove the spring clip (far right). Or I may try Oli's idea....

    Nope. Tried it. Right before reading your post, actually.

    Mine's gone too (but on the left side) so I guess it's easy to break off the melted tab underneath that is supposed to be a "lifetime" mounting. (hey, where's the facepalm smiley?)

    Also looked at the fastener from the right bulkhead 51718202799. The front twisty hooks into a metal clip but the back twisty locks into a white plastic square insert. Hopeful eh?

    Turns out that insert is mounted in 64318362894 which is, .... wait for it... the "Microfilter housing, bottom part" number 3 in the above diagram if you look in the far right corner at the front, its that little tiny square so... there's no part number for that one either.

    It's the Luger factor. I mean just take a look at that pistol. It's gorgeous. A marvel of intricate German engineering that jambs every fifth shot so you die.

    Are you saying 51718202799 might work?

    I just tried the orange interior trim clip. It works....but....it's hard to get it off again.
