This was so true. I didn't think that my hands were that big but I found it very difficult to change them. And the wire was so short too -- I thought I was going to snap it.

I had mine replaced. The indy used Arnott air bags. When I checked afterwards, I found the BMW air bags were cheaper -- maybe it was just that indy :(

jyeh74,

A common recommendation is to replace the X5 battery after 4 or 5 years. If you don't, you will probably see weird electronic errors appear.

I replaced mine when it was 5 years old.

I did cut the wires (without problems) when I removed mine. Obviously, I wouldn't recommend it but I had got as far as I could without removing the console and it was the only alternative left to me.
