what year and model is your car?

Expert:  Steve replied 7 months ago.

this is a common problem, the fuse board and glove box must be completely removed to access the cable connection. I have the factory BMW instructions for both of these tasks (step by step with images), however I cannot post them publically for obvious reasons. I can, however, email them to you. the site imposes mandatory additional charge for email delivery, but I can set this charge to the minimum allowable amount to simply enable you to share your email.
