Need help identifying a part

Does anyone know what the part number is to the plastic bracket that holds the wiring where the vanos board connects to the engine wiring harness to the valve cover? Mine disintegrated and I cant find them on Real OEM.

I'm afraid it's not available as a repair wiring set. At least if you are talking about the female connector, clipped on the block just behind the thermostat/ coolant pump, to which the male connector of the vanos solenoid board is attached: Item 02, Part no. 11367831450, in this plot
https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/sho...diagId=11_2674).
Enduring too much heat for too many years makes the plastic clips brittle so they don't survive even careful handling during a vanos job. A tie-rip is your friend here ... or you could solder from tinplate a cylinder to hold the female connector (with its remains of the broken clips removed with a file), with sturdy clips that don't age like plastic clips do.

A little difficult to understand exactly what you are referring to, but it could coincidentally be the same part I scoured the internet and M5board for just this morning. Are you perhaps talking about one of the parts Iíve circled in the pic below?

https:%2Fphotobucket.com%2Fgallery%2Fuser%2FDRFT240mayfield%2Fmedia%2FcGF0aDovSU.pdf

The upper part (which is only on bank 1, the piece on bank 2 looks different) is, i believe, Part #1 here...

https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/sho...diagId=61_5814

My issue is that as best I can tell, the pieces that have broken are on both the brackets and some of the various connectors that physically attach to them.

(also, would be great if someone could politely tell me what I am doing wrong with my pic attachment showing as a link and not an image)

Just a guess but the link was a PDF not a JPG, board will only show a JPG PDFs and other files show as links.
So you need to save the image as a JPG then upload it to either the board where it will stay forever or until they make a mess of an update. Or upload it to a site like you did. Then it will disappear at some point.

After a right-click on the pdf-link and 'save link as' to my PC's harddisk I could have a look on the pdf file.

Yes, we are talking about the same part, the upper one in your pdf-file. At first I was in doubt whether it was item 01 or item 03 on the realoem collection of Plug-in connection brackets. I do recall however from my vanos solenoid cleaning job, from more than a year ago, that there was a noticeable 'snap' when pushing the male connector on the vanos board cable (11367831450) into position on the bracket, so it has to be item 01, part no. 61131378908. Only this bracket has the fixturing-barbs on its 'guiding-angles'.

More details of the bracket are shown here:
https://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-1...uine-bmw-part/. I wouldn't be surprised if the bank-1 bracket (your pdf-file?) differs from the bank-2 bracket, to prevent a wrong installation of vanos boards ...
Though it's called a plug-in bracket, installing the bracket requires a 45 degree turn in the correct direction, to secure it to its steel holder.

My previous post was about the broken fixturing-angles (and how to repair them) on the vanos board 11367831450 male connector. They most of the time accompany broken guiding angles on the bracket, both being caused by the long term heat soaking. In previous post I was erroneously thinking that the fixturing-angles were on the female connector but they are on the male connector (at the end of the vanos board cable). Description in this post and attached pictures (if I can ever upload them ...) show the correct situation.
