Default Brake Line Clip

I'm looking for the part itself or the part # of the plastic spacer/s that slide in between the U shape tension spring and the brake line bracket that's welded to the dust shield. 1 at each caliper hose connection. The caliper hose connects to the LCA metal line at that juncture. I don't see it on RealOEM. Any insight is appreciated. Thanks Tom

Is this what you're looking for?

brakes > rear brake / brake pad / wear sensor

Brake pad wear sensor holder 33181182535

Not easy to find, and definitely not the first time I've seen parts diagrams with with the wrong images! Sometimes I get lucky looking at the diagrams for other cars like the Z3 or E30, but this sort of thing needs a google image search to find the part number. Had to go through the journey of finding this recently, so glad to share and I hope it helps.

Finding the part number has turned out to be only half of my problem. The parts diagram says that we only have one, but I thought it acted like a spacer on both sides despite only having one brake pad wear sensor. I've spent ages trying to find a second one that I've lost, only to realise that it may not even exist!

Would you do me a favour and confirm that you definitely have one on each side? I'm worried it's going to add to the pile of parts that I have left over when I put the car back together...
