Glove Box Removal

Hi Folks

I tried a search and came back with no results.

I am trying to install the AUX connector and one of the steps is to remove the glove box to route the cable as well as mount the mini-connector.

No matter how I tried, so far I have not been successful in removing the glove box. For you folks out there who have been successful in removing your glove box to install the AUX kit, can you tell me how the glove box is removed from the housing?

Any assistance is greatly appreciated

Thanks

Hi,

I haven't removed the glovebox; however, Step 3 of PersonaNonGrata's detailed "iPodYourBMW Installation Instructions" X5world Article explains the glove box removal procedure.

Good luck.

EDIT: See Post #2 above.

Thanks Kevin

I had removed the 4 screws but didn't seem to be able to remove the left side "strut".

I guess it is already dark now and will try again tomorrow when there is light
