2002 Parts Identification

Hello, I'm new here and new to BMW. I have a 2002 530i with some m5 stuff and the sport package. It carries a salvage title due to a light front end collision.
After getting it home I noticed some loose and missing parts in the front. As I don't know what it's supposed to look like, I'm not sure what's missing and even what to call the parts. I see some cooling ducts going to the front drivers brake but it's loose as is the fog light. There is no ducting on the passenger side..is that right? Also some brackets on the passenger side around the a-arm but nothing screwed into them. The whole area around the bumper/air-dam seems to be needing better support... and, or brackets.

My question is..What would be the best way to identify the parts as to name them to begin my search on-line or elsewhere. I was thinking a repair manual.

But, then it would need to have a parts breakdown.

Anyone have any ideas Thanks, Ron

RealOEM.com Online BMW Parts Catalog has parts diagrams. It will help show you what should be their and if anything is missing.

Also, Pelican Parts - Porsche Parts & BMW Parts - Automotive Parts and Accessories - Porsche & BMW is an excellent site as well.

Hmm, well I can already tell by your description your missing parts. I had a brake duct fall out once. More a pain in the butt then anything. But everything down their should be tight and not able to move around. If one side has a duct the other should too. One option I can suggest is taking it to a BMW approved body shop and asking them for ther opinion on what's wrong.

Yea..that's the last resort! Or maybe find one parked somewhere and crawl under it. With someone standing guard that is!!Ha. Thanks.
BTW I ordered a service manual maybe that will help.

Finding someone with one and looking would be an option. Most body shops won't charge you for a visual inspection unless they have to take parts off. Go at a time when their not busy and they will probably be able to accommodate you better

After big snow storms or hail is not a good idea! haha. Im sure first thing in the morning would be better then later at night. Most body shops provide free quotes so arange an apointment and have them look at it and get a printout of what is missing and the cost. Thats what i would do. That way you can take it to other places for comparing price quotes. I still have an estimate i had done for some accident related body damage. Good to have in case i ever get into another accident. I can show it to my insurance company to show what the cost will look like.

Some excellent ideas there Lord Vader. I stopped by a used car lot yesterday on the way to get shine-up goodies. I looked under a 530 they had ( with there permission) and now I see why there are so many unfilled bolt holes under mine. The splash guard that covers the sq. footage of a football field! is missing! Didn't even know there was suppose to be one.

Oh that's what you were missing. Hard to tell from descriptions. My M3 bumper has one. Not the biggest deal in the world but nice to have
