Number 15 is the part you need to remove, http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=AL92&mospid=47642&btnr=11_2836&hg=11&fg=40

It's held on by 4 bolts, shown as number 16 in link above.

You will need to remove pipe number 6 from the EGR valve http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=AL92&mospid=47642&btnr=11_2334&hg=11&fg=40

And remove pipe number 7 here by undoing #8 http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=AL92&mospid=47642&btnr=11_2338&hg=11&fg=50.

Or pipe number 1 if you have that set up http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=AL92&mospid=47642&btnr=11_2740&hg=11&fg=50

Carb cleaner and a tooth brush is very effective, you may need to use a blunt screwdriver for any stubborn bits
