Hopefully with added wire protection the trunk opening and closing won't be an issue anymore. Why put delicate wires through a constant moving compartment?
Lol

Trunk release

Has anyone had this issue where the truck won't open
and when you use the key to open it won't shut?
I pulled everything open and it sounds like the latch motor. Can anyone give me advice?...

Nothing leaking on the ground.
Some spray from the top of the radiator hose against the main hose and air intake.
Like a dry mist

Looking for an indie BMW cert mechanic in Miami, FL or near.

Valve Cover Gaskets on 2006 530i

That I am aware of! Just sayin that is a deal! The only other way is DIY if your CPO expired and you are willing to take the time to do it correct yourself.

Microfiler replacement/ Indy shop recommendation SF Bay Area

Amazon.com
I paid approx $38 and the YouTube videos helped...make sure you vacuum out the area before you install the new ones. So easy to do.
YouTube video is awesome

Possibly could you show a pic of where you relocated the electronics? I am curious and may have to do the same in the future.
