    I've got a 2019 F34 330ix GT that I just had wrapped (Black -> Tanzanite Blue). The wrap came out great, but the wrap guys pried off the driver door panel black plastic cup with door pull assembly. They tried to glue it back with black weatherstrip adhesive, but it didn't hold. It appears...

    Hi Everyone, I've looked in the forums, didn't find what I was looking for, trying here. I have a 2000 323i 4 door, and just very recently the trunk latch won't catch / shut / lock. No explanation. Removing kids back packs out of trunk , then latch won't close. This also obviously is running my...

    Haven't found anyone else with this problem so decided to share in hopes of finding a solution. 2006 3.0si Z4 convertible. The front latches were not working. Did a bypass of the storage compartment switch and now the motor runs for the latches, but the passenger side did not actuate...

    Today my tailgate got stuck closed. It tries to open and moves about 1/2 inch, strains and stops (and doesn't close tight again). I never use my window lift - but I do know it used to work. I tested opening the window of the tailgate and it wouldn't open either. I got inside the back and...

    I own a 2007 Bmw 530xi. My trunk no longer stays closed, I believe it's the latch but I would like a second opinion. If the latch mechanism is making a soft buzzing but not locking the latch, is it in need of being replaced? I also have already checked the wires and they are in excellent...

    Does anyone have a step by step on how to replace the hood latch cable from the hood all the way to the interior?

    Hi all, I am having a problem with my 2010 E60, it's the trunk. It won't relatch. Here is what is does NOT do: 1. Open with the remote. 2. Open with any of the buttons inside of the car. 3. It will open with the key but won't relatch. Here's what I've noticed: 1. When I lock the car the...

    I have a 2000 540i/6 that I have just recently purchased. I got into it knowing it would be a bit of a project, but I'm stuck before even getting to the the engine! The hood opened a few times in my ownership, and then it shut kind of roughly. Now the front is a bit sunk down compared to the...

    A week or so ago I had a dead battery in my '95 740i and a trunk that would not open with the key or the release inside the car. With the following help from Crewdog843. I was able to manually open it so I could get my charger out of the trunk.:thumbup: "Have someone sit on the trunk lid while...

    When I try to open my liftgate with the key remote or the cabin button, the latch activates multiple times and the gate is left in the locked position. Does anyone have a solution for this problem?

  12. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    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?

  14. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    The top cargo gate stopped unlocking/unlatching with use of the remote, interior button AND the actual button on the gate. So we drove it around for a day without opening the gate, then tried to push the actual gate button again, and it opened. Only problem is, now, all these bottons aren't...

    Hi Everyone, A friend of mine managed to pull off the cover of child seat latch in the back seat of my one week old X1, and push it in the latch compartment :( Here is the latch with its cover: and here is the missing latch cover that went inside the latch compartment (inside the hole that...

    Hi Everyone, I figure since I use this site so often it was about time I put a recent fix on here since there didn't seem to be a ton of recent links to it. This is a general procedure to remove the trunk latch and access the actuator or latch for any e39. One day my friend slammed my trunk...

    I have a 98 BMW 528 and my hood cable recently broke... I have the grill out and front bumper off , can't see both latches. How do I get my hood open?
  18. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I think my car was hit by a paintball which set off my alarm and now the hood won't open. Nothing happens when I pull on the hood lever, the cable that goes from the lever to the hood latch is still in tact. Is there a way to reset something? Could the alarm have caused this? And how do I fix it?
