Received my glass volume control knob today. How do I get the old one loose without breaking anything? Has anyone done this already? Thanks

EDIT: The old one was quite tight, but with two tiny screwdrivers I managed to get it off without doing too much damage. The new one fits ok.

Ordered it Aug 25, picked up Sept 11. Supply chain seems varied...I couldn't get the luggage package with the auto-stowing cargo compartment shade. Soft close doors weren't available either.

As I said in a previous post about Alcantara headliner, seems like some cost cutting measures going on a lot BMW, whether minor changes or big ones, it all appears to be some cost cutting. Not sure how much they save by getting rid of the volume knob in glass, but it's the little things that make big difference in the luxury class. Wouldn't be a deal breaker for me, but slightly disappointing none the less.

If you don't have that, there's nothing physical on the seat for any ambient light to "hide behind"
I dont have the travel and comfort option but still have lights on the back of the front seats.

all of this stuff is disappointing becuase they gave it to us and THEN took it away. it would have been a lot more palatable if it wasn't offered in the first place.

I also ordered the volume piece. Did you take off the trim piece on which the volume button is attached to? The video instruction below shows how to install the volume piece, but it doesn't show how the trim piece was removed. Do we need to?

Looking at the Video you do not have to remove the complete Trim piece you could do it in position. It would just be a little easier if you removed it but I personally don't think it's worth the effort of removing it. Just do it in place

Wow. From the difference in the little plates, the crystal plate must have cost BMW 3, maybe 4 cents extra per unit, or around $1,500 total if they sold 40,000 cars. I can completely understand the financial decision if it concerned anything other than supply. Smart business decision BMW. Really smart. Good to see you're still on top of your game.
