Upper neck broke off radiator, need help.

After a new waterpump and hoses, now the upper plastic neck on the radiator broke off of my 95 325i sedan. It has 220,000 miles on it.
Does anyone know where there might be instructions to R&R the radiator?
What else should I replace while there?
Best place for parts?

The plastic components used on the E36 become brittle with age. Its not uncommon for a car with your milage to have that fail. Replacement is the only option depending on how bad the break was. If its brittle enough that it broke, then replacing it is warranted.
