For what it's worth, the pictures don't display in "native" Firefox. However, they do show in Internet Explorer, or using a Firefox extension called IE Tab.

1. Do it when the temperature is above 65-degrees F. This will let you bend and flex the pieces into place without worrying about new cracks.
2. Tape and label all the wires. If you have a digital camera, take pictures of everything as you disassemble. That way you can have a reference in case you forget about where something goes while you're putting everything back in.
3. While you have everything out, replace all the little indicator bulbs in your gauge cluster and OBC. Replacements can be bought at Bavarian Autosport.

Good Luck!
I had a question about a recommended temperature setting for this job, and you answered it. Thanks.
