the 12V charger in the trunk

[I bet a few of you didn't even know there IS one - public service]

Ok, well i DO know that I have one, and I broke it. The electrical aspects of it work fine, but I broke the trim that keeps it attached to the side of the car.

Anyway, I searched the forums and also went online and searched several exploded parts diagrams (see http://www.getbmwparts.com/parts/201...iagram=viewAll), and for the life of me, I can't find the part number for the cheap plastic piece that holds the 12V charger in place.

Anyone have any thoughts, or can point me to a part number and a place to order it online?

That's quite an illustration. Care to tell us which of the pictures it is?

I can't locate the 12V in ANY of the drawings in the link, that's the problem (if I could, I could order the part).
The 12V is inside the trunk on the rear wall below where the trunk closes (very hard to explain).
I think there was once a hinged flap there, which broke first. Then the plastic housing broke also, and now I have a dangerous situation where the receptacle just dangles there.
Should be easy to fix if I could just figure out the part number!

Honestly, deciphering these diagrams is virtually impossible for us "laymen". I would call your dealers parts department and get the p/n from them. With that you will be able to easily find the cheapest price.

You are no doubt talking about the power outlet in the trunk. I saw it in there somewhere. You will have better luck here

OH: We may have a winner from that first link:
http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/show...18#61346904008

I'll have to back out to see if this is for a 2011 528i, but it looks to be.
And for under $10, it's worth a try, if I can find a place to order it (which should be easy with the part number).

Yup that's the one. Found it at http://www.ecstuning.com/ES168940/ (links right to the part, should another user find this thread years from now and benefit).
Under $17 with shipping - not a bad deal, and it will be great to not look at this dangerous electrical component dangling around in the back.
Thanks Quacker and kis87988!!
