Filter coming up short in airbox?

Went to install a Dinan intake I purchased on here second hand. All went well except that the filter did not meet up to the little spring-loaded nub that normally holds the filter in place.

I didn't feel comfortable leaving it in the airbox without that tension to hold it in place, so I popped the OEM elbow and filter back in. I assume I'm missing a piece that extends it? If so, does anyone know where I can pickup the missing piece?

I'm pretty sure I have the piece. I bought a AA green drop in filter that came with an adapter/extender piece. I believe newer models had to use this. It looks to extend about 3/4 inch

If you think it's what you need, cover the shipping and it's yours.

Thanks for all the replies, guys. I'll see if Dinan uses one in particular that I need.

I appreciate the offer, my friend. Unfortunately, it appears that item won't work for the Dinan filter, as the female divot on the Dinan filter is rounded, whereas the nub on that piece appears flat and disc-like. But I really do appreciate the offer!

You need to get Dinan part # D762-0128 which is a plunger adaptor for 2010 to 2013 model M3's
