Location of TV module

Does anyone know where the TV module is located in the X5?

There is a module inside X5s which have a TV/Video function that accepts TV signals and other communication stuff.

In my previous X5 it was located near the spare wheel.

I dont know where it is in the new one. I have asked my friend in service to find out for me but wondering if anyone else knew.

I'm going to buy this cable to override the TV. I think I found the TV module so it shouldn't be too hard to install.

Hi Mi5,

Where did you find the TV module?

Do you have to remove the iDrive screen to fit this cable - I think you might.

Thanks,

jayo
