Removing center oddment tray in a BMW X5

Contributed by: drex

Removing center oddment tray

In order to install the
Bluetooth phone snap-in adaptor, you need to first remove the oddment tray
that is below the armrest.  To remove the tray, use some old credit cards
or driver's license. Cram 3-4 of these in the gap on either side of the tray
near the back where the hinge is located and it will pop right out.

Run two pieces of thin plastic
along either side of the oddments tray. this is THE PROPER way of releasing it,
and pull up.

Although the other methods work,
they are NOT correct.

Get the plastic that is used to house headphones, video cables, etc., and cut
into two long rectangular squares 2 inches by 4 inches, and use this as the
special tool.

Works like a charm.

Its amazing the amount of "hack" solutions, some of which are not correct and
are bound to injure the supporting mechanism of the tray...
