Search for German Auto Solutions. If the vacuum chamber is still good they have a kit to repair the flapper.

I currently have mine off my 330xi right now (just finishing the CCV replacement) check out http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=611798
and also http://www.pelicanparts.com/cgi-bin/...&I1.x=0&I1.y=0

personally i just bought a new one rather than mess with the repair kit, I already save alot of money doing the work myself, i dont have a problem replaceing parts as needed. Best of luck

Make sure that pin at the end of the DISA didn't fall into the intake manifold.
It's pretty common for it to fall out and will easily ruin your engine.
