    rear shocks replacement Z3

    Am planning on replacing the rear shocks on a 2000 Z3. How do I access the top of the shock for removal, and installation of the new one? Do I have to take out the trunk liners? or is it accessed from the panel behind the seats? Probably a dumb question.. I know.

    I'm sure someone has photos

    Vinci's top replacement thread has good photos. The carpet behind the center console comes out to reveal a couple of rubber covers. Remove those to access the tops of the rear shocks.

    See step 3 for removing the carpet

    See step 4 for a photo of the rubber covers on top of the shocks

    Thank you very much Monolith... I knew it had to be something pretty simple... I just didn't want to start to tear into the wrong area ( like the trunk) and break something... Your help is appreciated.

    Pull the trunk liners loose from inside the car

    I picked up a set of Rogue Engineering rear shock mounts as well. The older versions squeaked, but the newer ones don't. The mounts are probably dead anyway.
