  • When you go to the dealer just tell them it is the plastic shield behind the bonnet catch.

  • @SolarMike - Maybe they don't want to get it from the dealer? Usually a lot more expensive than a used part, but you still need to know what to call it if you start asking at a salvage/junk yard or on the interwebz. Jul 27, 2017 at 14:10
  • @Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 So plastic shield didn't do it for you?

  • For future references, the website realoem.com is an online system to look BMW part numbers up. If you enter the last 7 digits of your VIN number it will automatically select the correct model.
