Help identifying part on 2012 335is

Did a coilover install today and while I was working on the left rear, this bracket and sensor popped out when I pressed too far down on the control arm. There is a stretchy rubber part that attaches to the control arm.

I put the assemby back into place but it's a little loose even with the 10mm bolt tightened down all the way.

What is this sensor and is it a big deal if the bracket is able to rattle around a little?

Has anyone had this happen & found a way to better tighten it down?

I looked at the RealOEM site for the parts but couldn't locate them.

Thanks for any help.

It's the rear headlight level sensor. If you drive your car with the headlight switch in auto then it can make a difference while driving.
