e65 Idrive controller removal

HI Folks,

I just purchased a used 2002 745i and now have the joy of getting everything right.

I found that a new battery fixed almost everything and kept all the trouble codes from coming back.

I am having an issue trying to find a thread that tells me how to remove the I drive controller or the console. Has anyone done this before? I have replacement for the controller but no idea how it comes out.

I will attach a photo of the console for your review.

Thumbs up idrive replacement

What an excellent thread. It even has a button to translate the instructions.

Thank you KaileSvick for the excellent help.

Hey Pryor - did you manage to get the console out, and replace the iDrive? My 04 new-to-me has a possessed iDrive knob, and I need to do this. I also need a source for the controller - where'd you find yours, and are you happy with it?

yes it was a great thread, but I did not see a button to change it to English fortunately I still remember some Spanish from 20 years ago
