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.
