2004 Z4 radiator support
 
3 Attachment(s)
Hey guys I'm trying to repair my Z4 that had an unfortunate accident. Right now I'm trying to attach the radiator and I believe that there is a part under the radiator, cooling unit and fan assembly that attaches it to the deflection brackets. Does anyone know what part that may be? I've included some pictures if you need anymore please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the reference. What I need to determine is how the radiator support brackets (pn #17111436264) which supports the radiator via two rubber bumpers attach to the "saddles: on the deflection elements. There must be a part that attaches the radiator support brackets to the brackets on the deflection elements, but I'll be darned if I can find a picture of it, or a part number I would appreciate assistance.

What happened to the part your looking for.

On the MZ4 the rad bracket meets with the car bracket.

A Collision Shop dismantled the front end before I got the car and a number parts, especially the small plastic parts were damaged and thrown away or seem to have disappeared. Can anyone tell me how the radiator bracket attaches to the bracket on the deflection element (car bracket)? The new pictures show that the car brackets have two mounting holes with a "saddle" between them. Apparently there is something that bolts to this "saddle" bracket that the radiator bracket mounts to. Attached are a couple of close-up pictures of the car brackets with the two mounting holes and two pictures of the radiator bracket next to the rubber mounting bumpers that fit into the depression on the mounting bracket. The questions are: " what does the radiator bracket attach to, and: what mounts on the car brackets with the two holes?r Help, anyone?

Did you look at group 41 at realoem?

You would have to order to see or get a car in one piece to look at like at the dealer.

Yes, I've looked through all the Z4 groups on realoem.com and can't find what I'm looking for. You're absolutely right that if I could find a complete Z4 to look at, I'm sure I could get all my questions answered. However, I don't know of anyone personally who has one I could look at and, understandably, our local BMW dealership isn't excited about taking one of their used Z4s apart (removing the front radiator cover and their dozen or so plastic push fashioners) so I can take a peek. Frustrating!

Hello, I hope everything is going swell. I wanted to see if you were able to figure out what that piece was also what did your body man use to hold the hood latch up?
Thank you in advance for your reply.
