does anyone else make the bezel. i dont want to wait 4-5 weeks for one
Not at the moment.
You could try a local ICE specialist, they maybe able to make you one up.
any body designed a retrofit for the climat control so so it removes the rounded bottoms?
Im new here & have been reading & looking at the photos Enforcers carputer.
I have had a bezel made for me by Mybimmer.net & am now in the process of relocating to CC down to the sunglasses area. I'm having trouble fitting it in.
1. It seems to be a fraction to wide for the gap, do you have to file down the inner lip of the centre console?
2. The CC is too deep & fouls against the large reinforcement bar behind.
How do you get around these problems above?
Is there anything else i need to know or do to fit the CC down below the OBC?
If anyone could help it would be most appreciated.
1. No, leave the console as it is, you need to trim the sides of the facia. Just cut the crinkly bits on the side upto the front (don't cut the front) and go back as fat as the raised screw holes.(that will give something to hook to the console sides and help it stay in place.
2. You need to trim the plastic back and remove the vertical board and tuck that down under where the switches go. You must leave enough of the back for the fan to fit onto though.
I will try and get photos of what I have done next time I take the centre part out, but it won't be until Sept at the earliest.
Is the backing easy to cut?
Is it a hack saw job or will a sharp stanely knife do it?
When you say cut the crickly bits on the facia of the CC you mean only up those bits off? Or do you cut further as in triming the whole edge off?
Is there any chance of breaking to CC?
Does you CC stick out at all or is it sitting inline with the OBC above?
Cheers for your help but i think i might need somoe more!!
Want to get this looking as OEM as possible
I used a junior hacksaw for the back and a sharp stanley knife for the facia.
Make sure you take the PCB boards out before cutting. Be careful with the ribbon cables.
In the picture the red area is what is cut, but only cut back to the screw posts (plastic).
You will notice that the red mark does not go all the way to the front, you need to leave the very front intact.
And yes it is flush.
Here is a link to some pictures (it's how to fix a CC) but it will help you in dismantling it.
Right its all making alot more sence now.
Where you say only cut to the screw post do you mean stop there so cut between to two screw posts? so you take off (if i counted right from the photo) 8 of the crinkles. Ie from the top (flat bit) down to the bottom (curved bit) Then leave the crinkles that start on the curve of CC at the bottom.
am i right for the bits to cut in the photo i attached?
