Wolf I wrote this from my SAMSUNG III just use to flatheads and compress the TAB from the top and bottom and it will come out and then clip ALL 4 prongs and reinstall mind you, you have to PULL OUT the white female coupling to the male part of the switch and then clip into socket and do test trial before inserting it to see if it lights up ok. Yes, turn ignition one

Im guessing you bought your car used, and the prev owner already did this mod.
Or he may have installed the actual Euro switch that has the emblem on the button.

I would say they just messed up over in Germany on the assembly line and gave you the Euro button instead of the USA one.

So I'm assuming this mod is only useful in SoCal if you got some a**hole tailgating you?

I recently did this mod as well. Best place for instructions on how to remove the unit are on ECSTuning: http://www.ecstuning.com/BMW-E90-335...5/Video272-HD/

Thanks.

I just did this on my car it's an 11 sport. I just took everything apart, cut off the plastic tabs and put it back... Everything needed was already in place. The only thing missing is a button with a symbol on it, but it'll just be my secret, lol

Pick this up if you haven't already modded the switch - it's a freaking great price for it.
