Real easy to do , one tip get a t20 torx driver ( a screw driver style) in stead of a t20 bit and driver.

e34.net write up is ok. I had trouble with it so I wrte my own.

I wrote one that is on www.bimmernet.com, www.bimmerforums.com and www.bmw4life.com that is a LOT clearer and easier to follow.


a tip I learned this year... while it was all apart, I turned the blower on 4 and cleaned the housing out that way.

Why didn't I think of that. Great tip on cleaning it out. I resorted to a Sears Craftsman shop vac with the crevice tool, but that would have been helpful as well. Good idea!!!.

I use the "shop-vac method" and I don't think I'll switch. You don't really want that stuff flying all around your car, to you?

sure why not?

easier to vacuum the floors than become a circus contorsionist.

or just pick up the dust bunnies by hand.

I live in the desert and have children, my car is never minty fresh inside except when I go to a hot rod cruise.
