7 Series - G11 / G12 (2016 - current)
The next generation G11/G12 BMW 7 Series flagship forum. Unveiled June 10th, with production starting in August the 6th generation 7 Series comes in a light weight package with extensive use of BMW i carbon fiber technology. The interior quality raises the bar with a touch screen and gesture controlled infotainment system. Exterior styling has been a sticking point with mixed reviews so far.

I moved your question to the G12 forum where you should get some model-specific help. You had it in the new member intro forum .

are you sure it is stuck? the sliding door has a two-stage opening (one for the drink holders bit and one for the lighter/storage bit located just in front of the drink holders) that allows you to open just the part you want. and to close both sections, you push the door forward slightly and it will then unhook itself from the built-in door stop hold and close on its own. works this way for both stages of covering. give it a shot.

Thank you for your reply to my problem. I apparently miss spoke about the problem. I've owned the car for two years and this problem just came up. The door works fine when opened to the drink holders, but jams or hangs when pushed to the full open storage position. It will not release from the locked position unless you pull forward on the door and then push on the door to release it. I've spoken with the dealer and they tell me that they are aware of the problem. I'll advise what they do when they make the repair.
