7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

Has anyone idrive stopped working and how easy is it to fix/replace? The system still recognizes through voice command but the knob itself just spin. I don't even feel clicks.

Is it spinning on its own? If so read this thread.

If it's just spinning when you turn it, then it's probably dead. From what I understand you need to take the armrest apart to get it out. If you look at the parts diagram in www.realOEM.com you'll see how to go at it.
