Hi, the part in your picture is the distributor cap. The part number for the cap is 103 158 00 02, Distributor Cap or a Bosch part number 02 240. The plastic cover that fits onto the cap is part number 103 158 05 85, Suppressor Housing and there is an additional cover that goes over that cover which is part number 103 158 06 85, Suppressor Housing. Let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks. And what is this sensor on the same car? http://goo.gl/088CQ
Hi, that looks like the timing sensor that mounts to the front of the block above the front crankshaft pully. The part number is XXXXX 153 46 28, Reference Sensor. Click here for the part.
The mechanic told me there are two similar sensors. I need the one in the front (toward the front grille) not the one inside the engine block. He said I need the one with a three-wire connector. (My mechanic doesn't speak much English, that's why only photos.) So I need the TDC sensor and not the CPS sensor? I see that the TDC sensor is much cheaper than the CPS sensor.
Ebay item 170717088331 is the right part?
That is correct. The part number I gave you is for the TDC sensor at the front of the motor. The eBay item is correct.
