But how do you get in there to do that, with the cover attached? Do you need to take the seat out so you can come in from the back?

Inner door liner (styrofoam?)

I have an '03 X5 and someone butchered the inner door liner on the drivers front door; that formed styrofoam stuff. Does anyone have one or know where to get one?

Thank you.

I went with Module Master and they did a great job. Granted, the ABS module was out of my 01 740iL but I would assume they'd work on X5s. It's been over 2 years and working fine - no issues.
