I am rebuilding a 2001 525i . Can anyone tell me what the part is called that holds the starter and the power steering pump in place? I can only see it from the bottom but some of it is broken off. pics please?

If you can direct me to the best deal for a replacement I would appreciate it.

You can find diagram of the engine on realoem.com. The starter is mounted to the trans, and the power is mounted to to the oil filter housing.
