X5 (E53) Cargo Cover

Hi,

My first post on the Forum in the hope that some one can give me some guidance on which is the correct Cargo cover (Cargo blind?) for my car.
2003 X5 (E53) 3.0d turbo diesel.

I bought the car last week but unfortunatley the previous owner(s) have misplaced the cover. Trying online to identify the correct type is driving me nuts.
Is is a concertina type? Is it a roller type? Are there different version of each? etc. etc.

This is what the receptacles in the side panels look like - Can anyone please advise what type of blind fits these?

Thanks in advance.

It's called a roller blind, and looks like this...



The BMW part number is 51477122026 and new it costs nearly US$500!!

Hey Rob,

I was lucky - my 05 still has the original. The cargo net was missing though and I found one in new condition on TradeMe (NZ version of Gumtree) for $100. Snapped it up... :-)

Don't give up - it'll be out there somewhere. Try wreckers too - and there are a few here in NZ too. Freight to Perth might sting a bit though...

OK, thanks again.

As a matter of interest I looked it up on the ECS Tuning site, as noted on the bottom of the photo you posted.

It has this helpful little hint

Rear Sun Blind - Beige

Keep the sun from annoying your rear seat passengers


Useful if your passengers are curled up in the cargo area I guess . .

There are multiple types of "roller blinds"...and it depends on MODEL YEAR/BUILD DATE and if you have the electric rear seat option or not.

The link given above to look at #15 in the diagram...may be incorrect for a 2003 e53. The prefacelift e53s...generally uses item #2 seen in the diagram below.The self retracting (#15) type pictured in the replies above are probably INCORRECT for the OP if their build date is PRIOR to 8/2003.

One must pay attention to the build date supplemental column in the parts database.

Click link below to go directly to an online part database. Look at the "breadcrumb" links at the top of the page so that you know how to get back to the correct diagram (it will be in VEHICLE TRIM). Input the last 7 digits of your VIN...that way the diagrams will be more specific for your build date...#15 may not even appear in the part nbr index if it won't work for your vehicle's build date range)

{#15 in diagram is only for 8/03-up build dates...item #2 is for prefacelifts}

All totally correct, Qsilver7, but the OPs photo indicated the the roller blind I suggested is correct - the fitting points for each type are rather different.

And I have one too!

We should make it mandatory to have the build month/year in our sigs.

Down Under we all tend to get very similar models, with not many cars being fully optioned with items like electric rear seats etc. Not sure why this but it's probably due to the very extended delivery time for optioned cars. It's a long way to Spartenberg!!
