Question Help! My AUX input fell inside my armrest :(

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hello, first of all forgive me if Im posting this in the wrong sub.

The other day I was messing around with my bluetooth adapter as it was connected to the AUX input inside my center armrest. This AUX port sits nice and flush inside of the armrest but when I yanked on my bluetooth adapter the AUX port completely separated, now only connected by the actually AUX cable.

When I disconnected my bluetooth the AUX input line it immediately snapped back into the armrest but "fell into the hole". Is there a quick, easy way to retrieve it without having to disassemble the entire center armrest?

Thanks for the space!

Same thing happened to me... I haven't looked into finding a solution because I'm assuming it's a pain in the ass to fix such a small thing.

While skimming one day, someone said you can use a really long screw driver and insert it from the bottom of the center console and push it back up. Never read into it though.

Haha this happened to me as well...a few times. Each time I just took a thin plier and pull it back out.

Take the cover off the handbrake. It snaps into place so carefully remove the cover off the handbrake. If you've got small hands you could fish your hand up inside and push the aux adapter back up through the hole...and just plug the connector to it with it hanging out the hole.
I've tried crazy glueing it with it properly placed but after a while, it slips down inside the hole again.... I personally think it's a design flaw by BMW for not stabilizing it properly..

Hopefully this makes sense. If I've missed anything please feel free to PM... Or respond here..

Do a search. Either on the site or via google. I know that I've read a thread exactly like this before and the OP got the problem resolved.
