Oxygen sensor harness holder part number?

My 2001 540i is missing the cable clamp that holds the oxygen sensor/crank sensor wires in place at the top rear of the engine. It looks like there is supposed to be a clamp there on the bracket attached to the coolant accumulator. Anyone have a part number?

here you go. i believe i see the clips you are asking for, i see clips for both pre-cat and post-cat sensors. next time spend the time to check realoem.com before asking others to do it for you. realoem.com doesnt have ALL parts but most.

Thanks for the reply, but I am well aware of realoem, as I've just used it to make a complete parts list for valley pan, chain guides, and cooling system.

However, I don't think you understood the location of the clip I need. It's between the right valve cover and the firewall, not under the car. It handles the harness coming out of the engine electrical distribution box (right side) leading to the O2 cables, reverse light switch, and crank sensor. It could be one of these, but I do not know what it's supposed to look like or how it attaches:

Looking at the point of attachment, none of the clips above appear to be what I am looking for. Anyone have the magic part number? I'd rather not zip tie the harness to the accumulator; that's just subpar.
