It is below and behind the glovebox.
First remove the plastic cover just above the passenger foot well area by pulling it out(it pops out, no tools required) then remove the screw that holds the carpet in place and the carpet pulls out to the rear.
The final stage is behind a piece of open cell foam(if the foam is still there) remove the torx screws and install the final stage. You kind of have to "stand on your head" to see the final stage. If you have already purchased a replacement you will be able to visualize its installation.
Its pretty straight forward, give yourself half an hour.
BMW warranty time says about 15 minutes.
Good luck and repost if needed!
