Did this video help you?

craig matthews: You do a great job sharing information and teaching others "how to do" things ourselves - thanks very much. It was a simple job to replace the recessed handle on the center console for my 2003 BMW 525i. I told myself before I started the work I had to have a plan and take my time so I didn't ruin anything in the process causing myself grief and probably additional cost - thanks again - the new part looks great!

Revoe Lucion: Yesterday, I performed the poor-man's fix for this issue. I took a rag and got some friction and heat into that trim piece until it took off the remainder of the rubberized coating. It's now shiny plastic, but the money saved will buy the parts to fix the pixelated MID and gauge cluster.

Jay Reese: Thank you thank you very helpful. Was wondering on how to replace the cupholder and also found out on how to replace that piece as well. Great job Ryam

sherrell council: he did it again great video.

ccrider: if the handle piece lifts 'up' and 'out' is the disassembling and removal of the sliding try necessary?

twalker294: Fantastic -- just ordered mine from ECS. Thanks Ryan!

Snake: what size torx?

ktfx5: @E39Source I know but the video looks a little blurry. But its still helpful lol. I <3 my BMW!

ccrider: i just bought a 540i and the interior is pretty nice EXCEPT for that handle. i'm gonna order the part and replace it this week. thanks for posting!

emwa3d: am amazed how BMW parts has got ALL these parts until now even this thing. I can restore mine to new condition but that will cost me leg+arm

E39Source: Excellent! Glad this video was helpful. )

ktfx5: This is pretty helpful but the quality is just a tad low.....

E39Source: @twalker294 AWESOME! Glad to help!

Quicksilv3r: Excellent. Thanks for this. I was unaware that part was individually available for our cars (figured we were stuck buying a new armrest). Mine is in similar condition. :)

E39Source: Yeah, you do have to get under it first.

E39Source: @ktfx5 Video was just uploaded, 720p is still loading.

E39Source: Probably 10-14... been a while now.

TheUn1versal: That ash tray cover is still driving you nuts!!

colt459595: Great overview.
