I removed the microfilter trim pieces on both sides last week on my 535xi while doing some work on the car, and now I cant figure out where this one piece is supposed to go. It appears to be a INLET MANIFOLD LEFT 64.31.6.939.721. Can someone take a pic of this part installed? Thanks!

It doesn't help that I'm apparently missing the matching piece that should go on the opposite side of the engine bay. (INLET MANIFOLD RIGHT 64.31.6.939.722) :dunno:

I think that's the trim piece that goes on the side of the cabin filter housing. That open end should go around the hinge from the hood.

That piece fits between the plastic cover of the microfilters and the fender, running lengthwise from front of the car to the back, just beneath the hood hinge. The end with the five holes goes toward the front of the car, and side with the holes is on the bottom.

Not sure if these pics from my car are clear enough, but here's a picture of the driver's side with the part in place:

Looking from the side of the car:
331199

Looking from the front toward the the back:
331201

Hope that helps!

Awesome! Got it in. A picture truly is worth a thousand words. I was trying to fit it on the passenger side, but turns out, LEFT means driver side in BMW-speak. Now I just need to order a matching trim piece for the other side. Thanks!!! :thumbup:
