Question about 2001 BMW 5 Series
I need to remove the front door driver side panel for a 1998 BMW 520i (E39)....how do I do this?
Hi Leon, I have a E34 1995 5 series and had to take door cards off. They're predominantly held on by plastic button clips around the edge/circumference of the door card HOWEVER there is a couple of screws hidden, 1 is behind the chrome door pull/lever a little round plastic cover hides it the other is behind the top of door handle maybe on yours behind door mirror electric adjuster button. one scew is philips the other Torx when pulling the card off the clips try a large flat/wide implement to prise it away as you may breaks some of the clips (£2/3 eBay) One more thing the door handle locates into a grip from behind you'll need a long screwdriver to push the tang up to release it. All the above should be well similar to your model. Oh! nearly forgot remember to unscrew/take off the door pin that goes up and down when locked/unlocked
