Mein Auto: 2006 530xiT
2006 E61 intake manifold help needed

I've got a 2006 530xi touring wagon. I have occasional smoke and rich fuel smell on cold start. I suspect my CVV is worn out and maybe one of my DISA valve's is broken. I've started to take off the intake manifold but I've hit a dead end. I've got an extra bracket (green arrow) that's not pictured in the Bentley manual or any of the DIY threads that I've read.

The Bentley manual indicates that I should have to remove 1 bolt and 6 nuts to remove the manifold, but I've got 4 bolts and 3 nuts. I've also removed all the bolts that hold the fuel rail to the valve cover. The Bentley manifold says to remove the fuel rail and set aside.

Do I need to release the fuel pressure first? Does the fuel rail just lift out and bring the injectors with it?

In the second picture (maybe upside down) how to you remove the wiring harness from the intake manifold?

Thanks,
Greg

4 bolts and 3 nuts is correct (for the intake manifold).

On that wiring harness bundle (2nd picture), there is a bracket that's holding that bundle to the manifold. There is one small screw on each side of that bracket. You'll need to remove those 2 screws.

Here's a picture of that bracket holding the wiring harness.
