Question about Cars & Trucks
I can see the battery in the boot of my 2007 BMW 3 series tourer and can see that there is a metal bar to remove first. But then there is what looks like a red plastic box of electronics and cables on top of the battery. How can I get this off first so as to remove the battery for replacement? Will I lose the radio code?
The red box is probably the fusable links and cover on the positive terminal of the battery. It should flip up so you can see the positive terminal and disconnect it. Not 100% sure about the radio code on BMW's. In general some lose the code, others dont

hi, the two clamps that secure the radiator have a small slot on the top, if you insert a small screwdriver into the slot and use it as a pry bar you should be able to unclip the holding clamp and it then releases like a hinge.

You might want to suspect a stereo amplifier. Does your car have DSP? In any case, look in the trunk on the left hand side. You will find your radio amplifier back there. It will have about a 3in connector with a bunch of twisted pair wiring. Remove the connector and make sure there is no water contamination. All sound processing takes place in the amp.

If the radio is displaying code wait, or wait, then the ignition and radio must remain on for 1hour. I would contact a dealer within the USA and provide them with your radio serial number. The serial number can be displayed in the radio by pressing and holding down the "M" button while turning on the ignition.

I have same problem need to get the serial number off of the back of the radio and the vin# and give that info to the dealer and he will have the code. If code still does not work ask for a different code since they installed radios from different manufacturers.
