This is a photo taken from the front to the back, and from the right side. Those cables go on the right side. The big thing on top is one of the manual break cables. The white thing on top is the beginning of the foam of the carpet right behind the cigarret lighter.

Time to search for the cables on ebay
Feel free to contact me directly if you should need help.

You shouldn't have to remove the bracket - but you can use the following as a quick guide:



Most times you can access the needed connectors by pulling on the connectors through the hole in the center of the bracket with a pair of needlenose pliers.

BTW, the bundle is there and hidden very well underneath the large metal bracket. I had the same problem looking for it and finally I went a bit further to remove the whole center tray and lift up the bottom bracket.

Hope this help!

Hi Clam ALert,
I looked under the center console insert. I pulled up the insert, all i see the is black heat vent, cig plug wire and a black bundle of wire under tightly weaved that goes into the top armrest. You can't see or get to the individual wires. I also see 3 thick straw size wires going into the top part of the other side of the arm rest where phone is suppose to be. There are no visibe harnest. I have a 2004 bmw x5 with nav. No phone or blue tooth option though. Does this mean I dont have the phone harness? I am looking for the purple wire with white line (12v switch power wire) in the center console.
Thanks,
lc

Well that's why! You have an x5. The wires are only there on an x3. On an x5 they are in the back.

Hi,
Oh, I thoguth they were refering to an X5. I just noticed on on x3world instead of x5world. I did a search on something and was brought here. Do you know if there are any 12v switched power in the center console of an X5? I believe its the purple/white wire. I dont see it anywhere there.
Thanks,
lc
