If you reach in with your hands, you can just push it out from the back. After the vents are out.

Thanks to everyone for posting the information!

I'm stuck on the trim, but I think I just need to spend more time on it to convince myself I'm not going to break it. I haven't had the car a month yet, and its my first BMW new enough to use dealer service (the 1974 2002 was much easier to work on).

I feel your pain...I felt like I was going to break something when I went through this too!

Just be cautious and deliberate. Start popping the trim above the glove box from the side next to the passenger door. Pull gently but firm and you'll see what I mean. It pops right out.

Good luck!
Brian

Default nav monitor removal

Hi all,
Can the monitor part of the nav be replaced without removing the entire unit from the dash? I have a bad scratch on the screen and found the part to replace it. What is involved?
Thanks, Jim

Tried to remove Nav last night. Removed the trim, screws and vents and couldnt find the 2 "slots"that you need to insert the hanger or file into to release the unit.

Where the hell are they??

my nav came out without having to use the tools...

my question tho, what part# are you guys w/nav using for the aux input? I ordered the OEM aux input kit part# 82110149389 and it doesn't seem to be compatible with my early '03 nav unit.

I have an 02 Nav and needed "tools" to actually remove the unit. The two slits you're looking for are accessed by opening the face of the unit, like you're going to put a tape or CD in (depending on your year). Then in the short time
you have until the face wants to close again slide the two tools or in my case the metal nail filers into the unit just under the bottom of the screen flat at both edges. The unit should then be able to be pulled out.

Sounds more complicated than it is...
