Thumbs down 2006 750LI front center arm rest-console

This is the 3rd time I have asked for help on putting back the cradle and parts taken out by a dealer for a Motorola V 710 cell phone. I cannot find how to take the inside apart and plug in the antenna and power supply. Have all the parts and do not want to do the wrong thing and break something. Does anyone know where the sockets are, how to access them or have a diagram of the inside parts, etc for dis-assembly? Please, pretty please? Have yet to have even one reply!

I'm not sure if this is the exact one you are looking for but here it is:

http://tis.spaghetticoder.org/s/view.pl?1/07/46/26

browse around that site and if it's not it you should be able to find it. FYI you can bump up your old thread just by posting bump in it rather than creating a new one! Good Luck with your project

Thank you for answering and the info. My cell phone is in the arm rest, center console unlike the phone info you supplied which is in the dash. I'm still digging about and can find no info to my problem. Some one must have an answer, diagram or can tell me how to access the area where the 2 plugs go to. (Antenna and power supply.) Thanks again. Help, anyone!

In DIY section there is a thread about installing BTUM8000. I think you can find everything you want.

The plugs for the phone interface are under the centre console........
Step 1. Use a credit card to release clips on rear air vent and lift it out being careful to disconnect the plug on the air vents as you lift it out.
Step 2. In the front footwell on each side of the carpet trim is one phillips head screw. Remove one on each side (right up towards the front) Front trimmed carpet piece now slides a little bit forward and then pull down and away from centre console.
Step 3. Second smaller piece of carpet trim on console is only clipped in position. Using your hands, manoeuvre the carpet trim towards the front about two inches and then it will simply come away.
Step 4. There are two screws either side of the console, one towards the front, one towards the middle that you need to remove. You need to slide the seats to gain good access.
Step 5. There are four screws, two either side holding the lower rear trim piece of the console in place, remove them and then remove the rear trim.
Step 6. Go back to where you removed the rear air vent and in there you will see three nuts. Undo them and remove them.
Step 7. The whole centre section of the console will now lift up, BUT, watch at the front when you lift it, there is a small plug that connects the seat controls to the car and also the connector that connects the boot release.

Once you do that the whole upper middle section of the centre console will lift away, leaving the entire lower section of the centre console still attached to the car.

It is here that the plugs for the phone etc connect.

Installation is a reversal of the removal instructions.

If you get stuck....PM me.

Regards

Ace

At last the solutions came all at once and I thank you all very, very much. And AceFX, that is great, thank you especially.

However I found "THE" Indy here in Tucson. He had 11 years with BMW, is a BMW L1 Certified Master Tech., (received it in 2010), and now has this new BMW shop with ALL the latest, new, diagnostic equipment, programming platform (ISTA), and is just the nicest person who wants and demands customer satisfaction, and service. The kind that sits down with you and explains the work and alternatives.

Car will go to him in a few days for oil and brake fluid change and he stated he would reinstall the cell phone cradle at that time. No problem.

Name of this Indy shop here in Tucson is "blue and white BMW Specialists" and his name is Robert Feeney. I'm so happy and thank you all very much!
