Hi,

I’m new to this so many thanks in advance for your help! I’ve just bought a 2016 2 Series Gran Tourer and have only just noticed that at the top of the boot hinge on the left hand side there is a thin plastic type strip to the left of the hinge that is snapped. It doesn’t appear to do anything and I am experiencing no issues with my boot opening and closing however want to ensure I’m not making the wrong assumption. It would also satisfy my curiosity to know what it is and what it is for? Photos below. Thanks again!

Anti-static ground connection ‘strap’. Replace it.

Thanks Doug! Can I buy this online and do it myself or is it a job for my BMW garage?
I don’t know how handy you are. If in doubt let your authorized BMW franchise hold the liability for screwing up.
