Mein Auto: BMW E39 520i (M52B25)
I replaced mine three times...

1st time: Replaced with non-OEM, did not help
2nd time: Installed OEM no error
3rd time: New engine

The CPS is connected below the intake manifold, which is a PITA to connect/disconnect. If you have a thin arm, you can try to remove the oil filter cap and use your arm.

Please see the instructions from TIS here.

You can see it more clearly below, from when I swapped my engine:
