SOURCE: Mazda 5 replacing external handle on sliding door

Your door should be held on with clips. Removing the panel is sometimes hard, just take a good WIDE flat head screwdriver, and whatever tool needed to remove the screws holding the panel on, and be careful. Check underneath the panel, by the inside handle, and the arm point for screws. Once removed, take your WIDE screw driver, and don't quite pry them off, more or less try to get it underneath and pull towards yourself. There is no real easy way, just try to be patient with it, and if you hit any binds, look for more screws, its just a matter of patience for sure.

SOURCE: window dropped into rear door panel. How do I remove the panel & repair

the window regulator has failed. the door panel has to be removed first which requires removing the trim piece that is on the grab handle (extremely hard to remove without breaking) there are three of four screws that hold the door panel on. once the door panel is off, the vapor barrier has to be removed. don't tear it, it is there for a reason to keep water out of the vehicle. make sure you reseal it properly with window weld. once the vapor barrier is removed you will need to unclip the window glass from the regulator. i typically will take and break the tab that holds the window. once the window is loose, move the glass all the way to the top of the door. now remove the regulator, swap the motor over, and reassembly. i would recommend taking the vehicle to a bmw dealership, around $650 for the complete repair and the dealership will stand behind their repairs

SOURCE: headlight bulb replacement

bulb, igniter, or module, in order of likelihood and cost.
My bulb was out, so had a bulb put in, but still out. Had an off-duty BMW tech do it.
HOWEVER, if you have the HID Xenon headlight option, you can get shocked to death (yes, death) if you touch the wrong things together.

It's in the owner's manual -- turn wheels in or out, on front inside of wheel well is a cover that has small screws holding it in. The there's a plastic cove that snaps off and, walla, you're at the back of the light. It just twists in and out.

Don't touch the new bulb (particularly if it's a Xenon).

I'd pay to get it done.

SOURCE: I have a BMW Z4 2003 2.5 with the exhaust emission

The Exhaust Emission Light can come on if the car is driven slowly over short distances.It will not happen on cars driven at speed. A short trip of ten miles at over 3000 revs should reset the warning light,although it may not go out for a couple of days after you have tried it . Hope this helps and saves a bill at the local dealer. JK

Driver door on 2003 z4 bmw wont open

Sometimes the connection behind the door panel causes this problem. It is a wire that fits into a hole on the inside of the door handle. Be careful when you pop the door panel off. Use the tool, which is a flat thin pry bar. The wire looks like a thick metal coat hanger and fits in the hole.

Lock on drivers side will not open

the most common problem is lock solenoid (inside door) needs to be replaced. Before replacing try re-syncing locks. To do this, you need to lock all doors from passenger side, unlock from pass side, re-lock from pass side - then try drivers lock.

2003 bmw z4. driver window does not drop 1/4 when opening or closing door. microswitch not in latch on body but inside door. how do I replace switch. thnak you

As long as it's not a mechanical malfunction, your car's position memory just needs to be reprogrammed. So, put the key in the ignition & place it in position 1 (ACC). Hold down the affected window switch for an additional five seconds after the window goes all the way down to perform a memory reset. Let this window back up, let go, pull the keys back out of the ignition, & open the door.

Needing instructions for the removal of drivers side door panel on 2004 BMW Z4.

There are two screws that need to be removed from the front door panel as well as the clips--the screw under the little plastic cover beneath the inside door handle, and an additional screw on the inside of the door, accessible when you open the door up--if I recall correctly, you should see a screw in or near where the air duct is located, where the air blows from your console into the air duct of the door. Hope this helps! There is also a row of metal clips on the top of the panel, which are different than the plastic clips surrounding the rest of the door panel.
Check the below link it may increase your knowledge on your car.

1998 528 i BMW.Where do I begin?

look for screws on the handle inside or under the arm rest next pop a corner of the panel away its normaly held on with door clips they are a little hard to pop off you might break a few but local dealer should have more most likely some will break if the window wont go up you probaly have a bad motor or window regulator if window goes up slow then stops its more than likely a motor possibility of having a bad window switch

Door key will click open the driver door but not the passenger door

Sounds like the actuator in the passenger door has packed up. It will need replacing,but is not a quick job because the door panel has to come off before gaining access to the door lock actuator.

Turning off airbag

all you have to do is open your passenger door and on the dash by the ac, there is a little hole where you can insert your car key and turn in where it will then turn the passenger airbag off. I have never had to remove anything to turn it off, all you have to do is turn in with your key!!!
