Is it a 330d? I used to have a pre-LCI 330d that did this. Seems to be bad design and if you push it in a self-tapping screw will hold it in place.

Mine did the same and split!
I got one cheap from dealer
It's called a "rubber boot" and the part number is 13717795284
21.60 Inc vat.
They get hold and cold and then go brittle and split, the new rubber boot is slightly modified to the ones fitted in the factory

Yeah, I keep all my receipts for all the parts I buy, and looked it up and defo 21.60 Inc VAT.
I got mine from Stratstone in derby, should be around the same I'd assume at other dealers!
For once they're cheaper! Lol.
Good luck!
