Honestly you can barely see it! At least you'll be the only one to see it!

You will have to disassemble the panel, then only you can relocate it perfectly. Don't try to force it or the locks can get permanently damaged.

Thanks guys maby I will ask my mechanic when I take it in for a service. If not I guess it does not matter all that much. I hope my locks are not effected.

Is disassembleing the panel difficult?

it's a bimmer and i would say that it is too risky. you may jeopardize the quality of the door itself, and the quietness of the seal to the door frame as well! por say, it may rattle after resembling it..
