  4. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    While installing a rear backup camera retrofit, I had to fish the camera cable behind the glovebox. I somehow managed to disconnect the power cable going into the glovebox light housing.

    I replaced what I thought was a repaired glovebox latch on my 740iL only to find that it is still broken. I can't get the glovebox to open. Any suggestions?

    Just bought a 2001 740iL, and the glovebox latch was removed. Prior owner bought replacement and included the part with the car, but I can't figure out how the Bowden cable attaches to the latch. Does anyone have a photo of how it is supposed to look when assembled?

    So I spent the better part of yesterday searching bimmerfest to find all the causes of water leaking into the cabin of the E46... Why??? Might you ask...

In that way, I will be able to connect my more accessories such as my GPS and radar and charge my cellphone at...

  10. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Hello, I recently purchased a Dice ipod interface and I have been wondering where best to put the dice module in the cabin so that I would have easy access to the Ipod cable and at the same time, I could still use the AUX jack that the Dice device has if need be. I already located the 3 and 6...

    Hello, I have a 2008 328xi with approximately 32,000 miles. Occasionally I hear a noise coming from behind the glove box. It sounds like a quiet fan or whirring. It seems to be intermittent, but is beginning to occur more often. It stops as soon as I turn off the car and doesn't change...
