The buttons worked straight away . The dial needed 1 line of code changed ! There is a how to on here ! But I'm useless with that stuff so contacted Wibbles and he sorted it remotely!

Gearstick surround had a small peace missing, which stuck out just above the idrive controller. It was a annoying me so had to be changed!

Got the dreaded petrol flap droop! Decided to give it a go myself as the price quoted was silly! Bought the part from Cotswold, +/- £20 , will see if I can find a part no, somewhere!
Thought if I can't do it, I'll have to pay the silly money but worth ago

Hi there.
How easy was it to change the petrol flap?
Mine stays shut with a piece of velcro at the moment. Wouldn't mind having a go if it's fairly straight forward.
Thanks,
Mark.

Hi .
Not difficult at all . Took me about 20min. There is a how to on here ! Also watched a couple of YouTube videos before I felt brave enough! Also felt that as the part was so cheap if I messed it up nothing lost !
