Thanks, Jeff! I figured out that I had to remove the side trim pieces before removing the loading sill cover. Once I had done so, I could get to the clips holding the sill in place.

Thanks again!

Is it too much to ask for a vehicle that's water proof?! This is the third leak I've had with this car & it might spell the end for my X3!

Water is pooling in the passenger trunk corner. That...

No more sunroof rattle

Maybe I'm an idiot for thinking that I had to live with the annoying rattle/thud/thump from the sunroof, but my pano roof rattles NO MORE!

Thanks for the service bulletin! Do you have first hand knowledge that this works? I'll be handling it myself since I'm way out of warranty.

Fuse?

Anyone think it could be a fuse since ONLY the headlights aren't working? I pulled out the fuse chart but can't seem to find the headlight fuse on it. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
