    Removing E39 MID

    Hi,

    Anyone has removed the E39 MID on their own? I've read in numerous places that all I need to do is to remove the volume knob, losen the hex nut and pull. I tried that and nothing happened. Was afraid to pull too hard and the threaded bolt might just be broken.

    Any instructions would be much appreciated.

    I never did it myself... but i saw the pml tech do it while he was adjusting the trim-flap that opens and closes. seems easy enough. if you cannot take it out, maybe drive to one of our usual ice shops and ask them to take it out for ya. dun think they will charge. like 10 secs of work, most likely will do it for you out of goodwill.

    Sorry, been away for a few days.

    Yes, the MID is the pic shown above.

    I wanted to remove it to thread the cassette adapter wire from the cassette deck down to the cupholder so that it is neat when I plug in my iPod.

    I found the way to do it. In case anyone is interested.

    When you pull out the volume knob and look in the opening, there is a tiny little torx screw at six o'clock position, use a torx screw driver to turn anti-clock wise for about 45 degree, you will hear the MID panel unclicked, use a small screw driver to push the whole front panel out.

    The thing is, once you find out how it is done, it is actually very easy. I can do it in a few seconds now

    Cheers !
