Mein Auto: 2007 x3
2007 bmw x3 aux

hi guys. i got 2007 bmw x3 with aux input in the rear with the heated seat buttons (its not the one when you have a lighter and you push it to pop it open). one day couple of my friends sat in the back and broke the aux cords and the pin got stuck inside the aux input. i tried to pull the pin out with various things like toothpick and tweezers, but since the pin is to deep inside i can't get it out. i was wondering if there a way to open the aux input from inside and just push the broken pin out. i just can't afford to get new ipod kit installed. there is a picture below to show you what kind of input i have. please advise.

You can probably get to it from the front. At .55 this video shows how to remove the console liner:

I tried that but I couldn't reach the pins for the aux. is there any way to lift the console from the back. I have a differnt kind of rear console layout than the one shown in the video. I don't have the one with cigarette lighter, mine looks like the one shown in the picture I posted. Please help. Thank you.

The screws that hold the console down are behind the unit you're trying to get out. It looks to me like you have to lever out. My suggestion is to get a plastic trim tool and carefully pry along either side. The units are different (with or without seat heat) the console where they fit are the same.
