Default Rear shock install help please

I bought another 318ti after my previous one got totalled by some drunk driver.
It came with a JOM Blueline coilovers, and here in Belgium that's not allowed for road use so i decided to buy Bilstein B4's.

I gathered all the parts as listed on RealOEM.com but i have some questions regarding orientation of the parts.

I'm certain about everything from the Bilstein top nut (#12) to the guide support(#7).
But what goes below that has me confused.

The support that goes below #7 has a washer gasket (33526751174) that is not assigned a number on the picture, is it #17, and if so is it the top or bottom one or do i need 2 for each shock?

Same goes for the Plate (33526776759) accompanying #7, i have no idea where this goes.

The shim (#5) goes above the top buffer (#3) but how is the top buffer oriented? Flat side up or down?

I think i've maybe gotten the wrong protection tube (#4) since mine came with an additional shock absorber that is not present on the picture.

I don't think it's possible to install the tube without the absorber, and i'm not sure about the absorber's orientation and position.
Does it go between #1 and #3, #3 and #5 or #5 and #6?

Lastly, Bilstein provided a washer (B6-KT1-Z001A22) with the rear shock, for bolt #2.
Does this go between the bolt and the shock or the shock and the trailing arm?

Any help or insight is greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Hello - no washer on bolt that goes to rear trailing arm.

Yes there will be a dished washer on top of the rubber rear shock mount. There is also one underneath. So the impact is spread out over the entire bushing. You should use the dust tube.

Iíll see if I can get some photos of mine if you would like. Itís currently parked for the winter.

So only two dished washers for each side?

I'm starting to think that 33526776759 is somehow the same part as 33521117677, and there's only 2 dished washers needed like on later e36 Compacts.
They're the same diameter, same size hole and roughly the same curve.

I've put them together like so for now:


Seems right to me, if it's not and you really want to dig through the snow to make a picture for me i won't hold you back.
