Question Side seat trim removal how???

How do you remove the side trim on the seat. The part that goes around the switches for adjusting the seat. Is it clipped or screwed or both???
Cheers

From the DIY Section, this is the only info I could find:

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...highlight=seat

Just take the seat out first, and then you'll see where to pry to get it off.

If it works the same as the non-electric sports seats you'll have to:

1. Remove the negative battery lead
2. Wait for a few minutes (we don't want any fault-codes)
3. Remove torx screws from front and back of seatrails
4. Push seat backwards in order to see to seatbottom
5. Remove wiring from junction-box
6. Lift seat out

You probably have to remove the seat adjustment modules first and then the whole sidecover. Get an L-shaped "pick" to pry the "nails" up on the backside of the sidecover.

It should't be much of a hassle, maybe half an hour of work.


This doesn't help terribly, but you can make out a screw hole on part no 10 on Real OEM here: http://realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?...47&hg=52&fg=10

So my guess is it's a seat out job to get to it...
