anybody help with location of body part on Real OEM

not unexpected, when I removed the engine cover to swap coils today on my 2006 325i the clips for the most forward wire harness broke. I wish the weak link was in the harness cover and not the more costly part that it attaches to. I can't locate that part on RealOem..just the cowl cover.

thanks but I am actually looking for the part behind it that attaches with the 8mm screws on the right and left side of the engine compartment. It is between the harness cover in the thread you posted and what some people call the cowl cover and others call the lower windshield cover. It is also the part that the covers for the brake fluid reservoir and the electronic cover attach to. RealOem only shows the cowl cover.

I just watched several YouTube videos about welding plastic. I never considered doing a repair with soldering iron or other heat source. I have to wonder how 11 year brittle plastic would fair over time though. I think lots of plastic will be breaking soon.

If just one broke, I personally wouldn't bother replacing it.

And now I can see its in the heater and a/c section of RealOem

Acoste thanks for the help as well. I just saw your post. It never occurred to me to look there.

Two clips are broken. I think I will try the plastic welding technique. Don't think I can look at a zip tie and sleep at night.
