Where Can I Buy This?

I'm still having trouble tracking this piece down. The piece I need is on the left and the piece I got from blunt is on the right. The difference is in the connection pointing up on both pieces. The sales rep at blunt thought maybe the po swapped in an e21 booster? I'm lost and frustrated!

Wow sorry guys totally my fault. That first pic is just one I found online to illustrate where the part fit. Mine looks similar, but the mc doesn't have the reservoir on top.

Sorry again. Will a pic of MY brake booster help a lot? As far as I can tell they all look pretty similar.

This isn't rocket science.  The 2002 boosters came with 2 different fittings.



EDIT:  5 min on google saved me a 20min response....

We can get those but for some reason, we can not get the gasket that the connector goes into.


Bill & blue7500,
There were two versions of the booster vacuum connector, the part Bill points to (yikes! $$47.52 for 34 33 1 103 261) is only for the early cars pre-Model 73.
If Max's catalog is loaded from the later ETK, I know it misses the distinction between the two versions, which can be a problem for unwitting customers.

Early part:
Usually round topped white plastic, and fits in a hole in the booster approx. 22 mm diameter with 3 keyed notches. The seal is like a gasket, rather than the grommet that fits in the later boosters. These early parts are almost always brittle by now, so if yours is not cracked or leaking, leave it alone! Seals are NLA and the connector might as well be, I can't see paying almost $50 for a plastic elbow connector.

Later part:
Usually square black plastic, with an ATE logo.
Only $2.29 and is used on many BMW from Model73 2002s thru at least some E36. These fit into a grommet that fits in a plain round hole in the booster that is a bit over 18 mm diameter. You can still get 34 33 1 113 652 for the elbow connector, and the grommet is 34 33 1 113 653 (was $2.76, might be NLA from BMW)

Which booster you have will determine the elbow you need.
If you break an early part, it's almost worth it to switch to a later booster (or get a tii booster) for the parts availability.

The late elbow is also found as an Opel part:
BMW 34 33 1 113 652
OPEL 5 45 306

The late grommet is common with even more makes of cars:
BMW 34 33 1 113 653
HANOMAG HENSCHEL 000 431 99 60
MERCEDES-BENZ 000 431 99 60
MERCEDES-BENZ 000 997 67 35
OPEL 5 45 351
OPEL 8983664
PORSCHE 911 355 921 00
VAG 861 612 175
VOLVO 3344990

I would like to point out that the seal for the old-style booster seems to be no longer NLA (Pelican happily sold me one a month or two ago), and the plastic fitting listed for less so there must be a new source for these parts.


I successfully temporarily replaced the seal with a part from the plumbing department at Orchard Hardware, too.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
