Please help! Identify this part!

I just replaced the cylinder head on my 2000 328ci M52TU. I have this leftover spring and I don't remember where it went. It's 2-3 inches long and maybe an inch and a half wide. Easily compressed between thumb and index finger. I'm stuck 2 hours from home and need my car to get home lol! Please help me. Thanks in advance!

It looks like a crankcase vent valve diaphragm spring, but did you take it apart?

It's about the right size to be the spring from the Vanos solenoid, but I looks really dirty to have actually come from there.
