    Re: the black plastic on the threshold to get in?

    In my case it's tan . . the top piece. We'll give it a try.
    Thanks

    You're good, I've had mine off 3 times and broke

    at least one clip each time. I now have spares. Actually I have been collecting spares for all the clips used on the Z. With the way BMW has been pricing Z parts lately the old $.03 clip is now a $4.00 clip.

    the black plastic on the threshold to get in?

    You just have to pull STRAIGHT up with a quick jerk. Like Fred said, you might break one/some of the plastic fasteners, but they're cheap (3 per side if I remember right). I've removed mine about 10 times, and only broke one (maybe I was just lucky). Once you see how it works, it'll make sense.

    Yes, but you will probably break a couple of the

    hold down clips.

    Trim Removal question

    Hello all

    Has anyone removed the "Inner Door Sill Trim Panel"?. Does it just pop off? I hate to ruin it by prying the wrong way.

    Thanks
