Flip up Nav repair

Make the dealer repair before you take delivery. This is rare (meaning not reported on here with any frequency), but could be an expensive repair. I have no knowledge if parts like gears ect are available separately or solely as a new flip screen.

Here are the parts:

As stated previously there is no shop manual for the e83 (and Bentley has no plans to produce one as of last year). Your pre lci refresh car is close enough to the e46 that a Bentley for that will get you 90% there.

yea there, Im not going to ask them to repair it... ITs not importent..

The nav has no effect on the operation of the truck i just have to get my hands on a broken one i guess.. there was one on ebay for 50$ but its sold already...

See that round part on the left side (diver side) thats the coil and gear for the flip up and down action..

Illl end up just taken it apart and finding something that works... once i have the gears in my hand i can find someone that has something to match... (right ratio and teeth)

The gears are damaged and made of plastic and cannot be supplied for a DIY repair. You need a replacement screen and they are about $700 new. You could consider placing the screen in the upright position and fixing it there.

BMW X3 navigation flip

Hi guys! Great to be a part of Bimmerfest!

Been a while that i have been wishing hoping and praying that i can find a fix in my navigation system. i have a 2004 bmw x3 and its navigation "arm" or "flip" or however you may want to call it is broken. This affects all its buttons, scroll and power button. it workd though 80% of the time. obviously i turn it up manually and wedge the side of it so as not to fall down. I would greatly appreciate if someone can help me find a part for its broken mtor. Million thanks to all!

Flip Dash Navi

Well having the navi in upright position is ok. However, because it has some kind of loose connections, the screen goes blank every now and then. I have to tweak and guess which button will turn it on. Again..... Any suggestion where i can buy a motor for its flip up function? Many thanks again..
