It took me nearly 30 minutes and a few replays of the video to find what I was looking for. It helps a lot to have a mini maglite or similar to shine into the hole.

Thanks for the DIY!
Glad I could help.

Just did this on my sedan... sweet! It was very easy, and far easier on a sedan than a coupe. I bought the gaskets from shogun on bimmerforums, which is a great deal ($40 shipped for all 4). Took about half an hour to thoroughly replace all four. The paint can opener is a MUST! It made life easy. Yes my car is filthy.

Nice job man, glad to see this DIY is still getting some use! Paint can opener is definitely a must.

Coupes are just as quick once you know what to look for, but it looks like sedans are stupid easy.

Love it, all my other doors are looking good except the driver side, and I wasn't sure if the rubber trim was apart of the body.

Where did you get your door piece from that came with the rubber? Or do they all come like that?
