Z3 Light connector part number?

Hi,
I need to replace the connector for a front bumper mounted marker light, but I can't find the part number. I've looked in RealOEM, the Z3 Electrical Troubleshooting Manual and the Wiring Diagram System but have found nothing. I know there must be a BMW part number for it but am at a loss to find it. I even searched for the same part as it is used on the E46 side marker lamp (additional turn signal in BMW speak) but can't find it either.

This is not the part that the bulb plugs into, it is the housing that holds the sockets that are connected to the wiring harness.
Can someone point me to the part number or to where else miscellaneous sockets are listed on RealOEM or otherwise? (Nothing in sections 61 or 63 on RealOEM was useful.)
Thanks

Can you examine the one (good) connector you have left? There may be a few digits of a partial part number on it you can use.

A wild, wild guess would be 61138352390 (Socket, $20.48 each picture at http://www.ecstuning.com/ES165379/) and 2 each of 61130007569 (pigtails $2.85 each). But, I think the pin diameters are smaller than those.

What is wrong with the original one? It is easier to replace pins than replace whole socket housings.

Your wild guess was a good guess, but not correct.
Those are the headlight/fog light connector parts.
The marker lamp/additional turn signal lamp connectors are much smaller.
The housing I need normally has a lift-to-unlock tab which attaches it to the bulb socket.
An impact with a cone at an autocross took out the tab.
Good idea to look at the connector for any info (smacks forehead).
Thanks
