Check the seals around windows and tops. They may be too old and need replacing. Also check alignment of seals with the window. Could be putting top up and down has them slightly out of place.

How do you replace the hood badge? 98 BMW Z3

Allow some warm water mixed with dish soap to penetrate around the edges of the old ornament. Gently slide a pry tool into the top or bottom center. The hold downs (plastic clips that SHOULD pop) are going to be on the left/right middle. While continuing to pour some warm water and dish soap around the pry point, work the pry tool around the circle. If you don't have a pry tool, use a non-ridged butterknife wrapped in electrical tape. It will take some force to remove, but it will come out.

Please note, you CANNOT re-use the clips. Your new hood ornament should have some with it.

Remove ALL old adhesive from the paint surface so that the new ornament will go on smoothly. Best of luck!

How to fit a BMW Z3 hood ? Bought the hood - nice quality but no fitting instructions.

I found this very detailed tutorial a while back - I ended up just replacing my rear window and not the whole hood so I have not followed it myself so cannot personally vouch for it's completeness or correctness, however, it is by far and away the most thorough tutorial I found during my search!

Also please note that it wasn't written by me, so credit should be given to the original author, whose name I can't seem to find! Either way, I hope you find it of some use.

Retracting mirrors on 1997 Z3 Roadster

To move them, remove the trim on the inside, and remove the 3 nuts that hold the mirrors on.
You said the key word....force. They are not designed to fold in.
And at $250.00 (at least) each (that's unpainted) I don't think you want to replace them unless you have to.
