Why must it be replaced? The part number depends on the options of the car to be programmed/coded.

Part is about $120 and you can use realoem.com to look it up.

How does it come out? Do you just pull up on the idrive knob to gain access to the controller?

realoem doesnt sell anything, it is just a part look up.

How did you 'call' them?
