    Keyless battery replacement
    « on: 2021-10-04 02:47:06 »
    Does anyone have a trick for getting the battery compartment open (keyless ride)? I think BMW used superglue on the dang thing...


    I'm trying not to destroy that $300 item in the processhappy

        Thanks.  I watched the video.  Before doing so, I did manage to get the cover off, but it was far more difficult than presented in that video.  It took a sharp edged tool and considerable force.  At least I got it done.


        Heck.  Is there ANYTHING not on YouTube??? ^-^  Is anyone working on a way to just plug that site into our brains???

          When changing FOB battery don’t go cheap, I got some no-name batteries on Amazon and they only lasted 3 months stick with Panasonic or Duracell

          As for Utube I can’t believe I survived 72 years without it, lots better than reading the manual
