E90 Oil separator

Hi everyone, I need to change an oil separator since my car is smoking and with all the symptons that I mentioned to a technician it was concluded that an oil separator needed to be changed and I am struggling to locate an oil separator on my Bmw 320i E90 2007 model, I have been told that it is on the intake manifold but I cannot locate it, can someone please assist me if possible post the pictures of it before it is disassembled.

Thanks

Hi the diagram really helped but now apparently my car does not take the oil separator because is a N46 TU engine, but now I discovered that the hose that is connected to the angle connector was broken, Now I have Two questions. 1. What is the function of the angle connector the part labelled no 15 on the diagram above, 2. Can the angle connector or the Hose(this Hose connects from angle connector to the valve cover) cause the car to smoke?

I'm pretty sure #15 in the first diagram returns oil to the sump.

That hose can leak oil onto the exhaust and burn off.
