  6. Trunk unlocking problem

    E46 (1999 - 2006)
    My 2002 325 has developed a trunk unlocking problem. On several occasions, the trunk will not unlock when the remote trunk release is pressed. You can hear the trunk unlock, but it sound like it immediately locks again. I think this may only occur only when the car is locked (as when opening...

  8. Unpleasant (oily, misty) smell in the trunk

    7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I traced the smell to the noise dampening material located on the horizontal wall separating the cabin from the trunk. I had this replaced but the smell is coming back on a sunny days when the inside car temperature is higher. Does anyone has this problem ?.

  11. Missing items from the trunk.

    E60 M5 (2006 - 2010)
    Hi All. Just picked up my 2006 M5 from a dealer in Texas and found out there's NOTHING under the mat in the trunk. I realize that the M Mobility Kit's pump and sealant are supposed to go there, but the plastic/foam mold has space for something big, and then three small things (like lug nuts...

I can still open the trunk with the remote, with the key or from inside with that bright yellow lever :). A thread here on forum said it might be the switch itself. So...
