    Alarm piece (bump stop)

    Hello All,

    I am stumped. My BMW alarm has had some problems. After replacing the switch in the front part of the hood, which depresses and therefore engages the alarm, I still couldn't figure it out. It turns out that the piece which attaches to the hood, a small black stop was missing, therefore not depressing the swith all the way. I am having the hardest time finding the part number for this bump stop. Could anyone help?

    all best,
    Jeff

    I really don't see anything that fits that description. But, I'm looking @ a 1999. Not sure of your model-year.

    Totally Paul! Thanks so much, but it is such a small piece and it really is not listed as far as I can see. I spoke with Circle BMW parts department who did seem to think that it is a universal part meaning it fits many models. In any case, they suggest that I purchase a taller switch which BMW changed around 1999. It was only 12 bucks so we will see if that does the trick.
    Thanks for trying to help Paul,
    jeff

    solution

    Thanks Paul,

    I received my new switch from the dealer today from 13 bucks. It is indeed taller with a newly designed top part which will enable the connection much easier. It was a redesigned part by BMW. I guess I was not the only one whose Alarm was not engaging.

    I won't be able to get to my car for a week, but I am confident that this is different than the current switch and should do the trick.

    I'll keep you posted.

    Thanks again,
    JM
