help, where does this connector go (under intake manifold)

upon replacing my intake manifold, I found this loose connector that i did not remove myself, must of gotten snagged.

It is under the intake manifold, it splits off from a harness that continues on to a coupling connector on the a/c compressor.

Numbers on this connector are:
7570216
and
7807642

Before you allow full-on panic to set in, do be aware that BMW, like most manufacturers, uses the same wiring harness in every vehicle, regardless of what options are ordered, thus on any given unit, you are guaranteed to find multiple connectors hanging idly and flapping in the breeze. Doesn't mean anything is disconnected, only that whatever that one goes to, you don't have it.

interesting, may be thats the case.

I gave up on finding where it goes, and re-assembled.
Everything appears to be working, and ISTA does not show any errors from any modules.

There you go. It's the acid test. If anything doesn't work, maybe it is unplugged, but if everything works, well . . . .

There is, of course, a limit to that. Like if the engine falls out onto the ground, or a door falls off, . . . .

The Me Too Extra Connector!

I know this is an old post, but I just did a N55 swap in my E70 and have the very same plug left over. I was very careful, but feared failure. At least finding this post has given me some hope.
