help identify this broken piece

Hey so I crawled under the 2007 E93 last Sunday and did an annual inspection. I found this broken rubber mount and took a picture thinking I could easily identify it later. I've gone through all the diagrams on realoem.com and flipped through my Bentley and still cannot identify it.

You can see the front axle right there-- help?

Its actually some type of rubber shock mount that is broken right in the middle so I can't reconnect it. I need to know what the piece is so I can replace it.

It is the mount for the power steering hose. They often get broken while replacing the water pump. Replace it soon or use a zip tie to keep if from flopping around until you get the proper part.

Cool, that sounds right but I still can't find that part on realoem. Check out the attached diagram of the power steering assembly-- can you find the right part on there? #4 is the closest thing but its just a hex bolt.

In the meantime, I'll go ahead and zip tie, thanks for the tip.
