Contributed by: SuperGreg

Replacement of OEM ashtray with OEM non-smoker tray including fitment of
lens to allow for nightime lighting of tray

BMW parts needed

Part # 51-16-8-402-968

Description "Storing part"

List price $9.00

Tools needed

Dremel tool or drill and various bits + a round file if your largest bit
is 3/8" like mine was.

The installation of the lens was quite simple.

1. Pop lens out of original tray

2. Measure original tray for center point of lense opening and mark. The
opening is 7/16" in diameter

3. Either Dremel or drill new opening in non-smoker tray

4. Snap lense into opening of non-smoker tray from the inside

It's a very inexpensive mod, and only takes a few minutes to install
