Quick question iíve taken the throttle bodies off the air box so need to replace the clips. What part do i need to order?†

Is it:
Airbox to throttle body duct upper/lower clip
Or
Plenum chamber to throttle body duct Clip

Also how do you fit the clips is there a specific method or tool?

Alsooo, is there a difference between upper and lower clip?

Mate, by now you've learnt that it's never a quick question.†
scratch studycheers

Clips or clamps? There are three different sized clamps for 8V engines, TB to airbox and rubber intakes.†
11 61 1 460 940 x 4 are 46mm.†
11 61 1 460 901 x 4 are 50mm.†
11 61 1 460 900 x 4 are 48.5mm.

If your bike has the original Oetiker clamps a special tool is useful, but not required. If someone has replaced them with worm gear type clamps, then re-use them if not damaged. I use pinch pliers ('dykes' or sidecutters work but not as well due to the angle) to pinch the clamp closed when it's in position. They're easily prised open with a suitably sized flat blade screwdriver, but you'll probably stuff them up for re-use.

ETK is a bit confused as to what sequence they go in so you have to look in section 13, fuel supply - TBs, as well as in section 11 - engine, last page, where the airbox is shown.

Sniff...can you smell that? I think it might be bullsh*t.

Oh my god how simple I thought it would be† (o)†.

Ok So my clamps look like this:


and I found this link:†https://www.motorworks.co.uk/vlive/Shop/Parts.php?T=5&NU=15&M=40&Ct=FA&SbCt=BA_15_40_FA_50&spPage=2

Which lead you to either upper or lower airbox "clip" however they are exactly the right price, part number, BMW specific part number and both 48.5mm.

My bike is a '91 LT

Also thank you for the clip information I'll have to see what I've got that I can use I think I might have a similar looking clamp

Ahh so looking at the link you attached I need part No.†11611460901†and†11611460900. Looking one Motoworks '901 is called "Plenum chamber to throttle body duct clip 50mm" and the '900 is called "Airbox to throttle body duct lower clip 48.5mm"

Best and easiest thing to do is to carefully observe the diameter where all three of the clamps are seated between the airbox and throttle bodies, and again at TB base to rubber intakes, whack a caliper onto the space and scrutinise the differences. You're there, it's all within reach. Those fractions of mm's make a big enough difference between an easy fit when reassembling, or some colourful words added to your vocabulary.

Only ever removed the clips from the top of the throttle bodies when removing plenum, I always use pure silicon grease sparingly helps keep the rubbers supple, had them of three or four times now and I secure them with tie wraps never had a leak, saves a hell of a lot of messing about.
