HI there, Thank you for the donation,

There are 2 special tools for removing the door trim, do you have access to these, also there are cautions for the air bag system, if you have any doubts about doing this or you don't have access to the special tooling go see a dealer, see text for Tool No, and further information.

Hi there,

I will have to pass this on to our BMW tech, as this is all the information that Mitchell 1 has, I have sent this request on and I hope that you will get a response ASAP.

The door panel comes off after the five screws holding it on are removed. Two of them are in the armrest trim, one is in the recess behind the SRS emblem, one is in behind a finisher for the door release, one is behind a finisher that matches the door panel color at the front of the panel. Then a plastic wedge tool to pop the panel clips loose. If you choose to do this, beware, air bags can be set off and cause a fair amount of mischief if mis-handled.
