I did this as well and could have used your DIY back then when trying to remove the shift lever and pivot bearing. Also, on my 05 330i, I do not have the foam pad, I only have the carpet and I did not see the need to remove the carpet.
Awesome - I had forgotten where I found the picture
- I had just saved it on my desktop as a reference. So now I can give you proper credit!
Correct, you don't have to remove the carpet, but it takes about 5 seconds, and one less thing to get grease on, or screw up with the tools.
