    Re: iPod DIY Help Needed - Not

    Ok, That's a big never mind!

    I was trying to follow BMW instruction sheets for iPod Interface Retrofit (6/2006) which stated that I needed to remove the glove box before beginning the install. I couldn't figure out how to do this.

    Finally figured out that the glove box removal was only necessary if I was going to route the iPod connecting wire through a newly drilled hole in the top of the glove box. Sniffing around on the web, I learned that many have simply run that wire directly into the glove box from the tunnel that held the CD changer and now holds the interface box.

    Problem solved. Everything works fine.

    If someone has a TIS or some other written/pictorial explanation of how to remove the 6-Series glove box, I'd still love to see it.

    iPod DIY Help Needed

    I've read posts indicating that others have had success in installing the MOST iPod adapter. It sounded like a relatively easy thing to do in a 650i with MP3 capabilities.

    Unfortunately, I'm stuck at the "remove glovebox phase". I've found a very detailied and well-pictured explanation of how to complete the install once the glovebox has been removed but this post did not inclued pictures of a glovebox removal that looked like my car.

    If any of you who have done this upgrade can shed any light on the glovebox removal process, I'd really appreciate it. I've removed the two Torx 30 screws and the two phillips head screws on either side of the glove box, the 4 Torx 15 screws along the top edge of the glove box and 4 phillips screws from the kick pannel in the footwell, but I can't get the glove box loose. I assume there are
