DIY: Replace Driver's side (or passenger.'s) grab-handle w/ an OEM sunglasses holder.
Published by srcstc

Lightbulb DIY: Replace Driver's side (or passenger.'s) grab-handle w/ an OEM sunglasses holder.

Sunglasses holder taken from the new BMW X1.

#10:



Black: 51167842970
Beige: 51162992462
Grey: 51162992461

Part ordered from Justin @ Roveractive for $29.95 + $5.95 shipping

1 888 BWROVER or 570 489-4026
Fax: 1 866 323-9725
www.roveractive.com
www.roveractive.net


He also mentioned he could do $24.95 for purchases of 5 or more in case anyone wants to organize a GB.


Now for the pics:



Driver's side (can also fit the passenger's side)



Use a small screwdriver or similar to open the cap covering the screws.



It swings out to hold the grab-handle open



Use a Torx T-25 screwdriver to remove the screws



Use the same driver to install the sunglass holder.



Close the caps covering the screws and the one holding it open.



Done



Perfect fit!

I have a pre-LCI E90 with black Dakota leather interior with the headliner that is NOT black. What color handle should I get? Beige or gray? I want it to match the headliner, just like the handles.

I'll contact Justin @ Roveractive. I'm sure you'll all be paypal'ing him. Also doesn't matter what color you get.

FYI: you can put one on both sides if you want. Just order 2 of the same. A lot more useful than the grab-handles if you ask me.

I'd bet that it does fit. Post a pic of your grabhandle and I'll tell you.
