    The following attachment is a document authored by Shipkiller. I used and saved it long ago before the Shipkiller website going down. It is one of the best write-ups I have seen to date on how to remove the convertible top from a Z4 and replace its Hydraulic motor with a new one. It also...

    Hi all How do I remove the fuse box from an E92? I have managed the get the glove box out and the fuse box screws, but I cant easily remove the actual fuse box. Is it simply a matter of unplugging the cables from the back of it? They seem pretty tight on and they don't seem like easy clips to...

    So I need to remove the rear glove compartment (the storage behind your seat). My main goal is to take out the center console, but I need to take out this compartment so I can wiggle the center console out. The LAST step of removing the rear compartment says "16. Rotate Manual Override cable...

    Hate to bring this back to life. I want to remove the front seats and have a good clean (it's spring here in Aus) I took a good look for a thread, and found what was obviously a great one, problem is the whole instructional was on photos that no longer work! Ha! :mad: Pulling a seat shouldn't...

    I removed the overhead grab handle above the driver seat on my 2001 B10. I did the same on my former E46, as I periodically hit my head on it. Other car manufacturers don't usually put a grab handle over the driver seat, as the driver has the wheel to hold on to (hopefully!) and put blank...

    So out of curiosity (and because i'm currently working on it), has anyone ever removed their e-box? I had to switch out my DME due to water damage, and had the job been done at the dealership, they were also gonna exchange the e-box. So I bought a new e-box, proceeded to realize that it was a...

    Ha ha... How in the world does the rack come out from under the chassis after everything is disconnected. It almost looks like the motor mounts need disconnected so that I can get it out. What's the secret here?

So I purchase those items and even got myself an adaptor for my drill so it could be easier . For some reason it's not working , I did notice the scratches did get...

    Problem: springloaded clip-on sunglasses fell between center console and driver's seat of my 2006 Z4 3.0SI. The prongs on the sides of the sunglasses have them gripping something (rug?) under the mechanical stuff on the side of the seat bottom and I can't pull them out forward or backward with...
  12. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    I think I have done something really dumb. I did not read enough before attempting to remove the radio (head unit) and did not realize the screw below the volume knob only needed to be turned a little bit. I put a t10 in there and turned it hard, thinking I had to completely unscrew it, and I...
  13. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I had the same door vapor barrier leakage problem reported in other threads (and solved by the dealer in replacing/repairing the seal). However the floor carpet soaked and got mildew over time. Now I need to replace the carpet. This requires removing seats and center console. Seats are easy...

    I turned my 2001, 325i on yesterday and suddenly the radio does not work. The time is not displayed. All the lights around the radio and clock dash are on and the AC controls work. I thought it was a fuse, but not the case. I'm thinking of removing the face plate from the dash and trying to...

    Hello, All - I am sure that information on this is posted here somewhere, but an hour of searching hasn't produced results. I'm hoping someone can link or provide some guidance on removing the back carpet/panel in the trunk of my Z4. I'm trying to install a DICE iPod adapter and I'm having...

    Hi all, I just saw a new black stain on the tan fabric of my 3 Series just over the seat-belt (b-pillar), near the roof. I think it is eyeliner or some kind of black makeup that my wife was holding while she grabbed the seat-belt. Can the experts give me some advice on how to clean it without...
