E87 idrive not opening

Post by filroz » Fri Sep 07, 2018 11:03 pm

Hello,
( E87 facelift 118d automatic )
This morning I went to my car and my idrive screen did not flip up.. I can still hear the little engine trying to open but no movement whatsoever. I tried to check it a bit and a little plastic broken cogwhell came out of the mechanism on the left. Do I need to replace the whole unit or I should try to dismantle it and take a look ? Did it happen to anybody before ? I googled a bit and didnt see many results as I think not many BMWs have flip up screens ( I think only 1s and Z4s had , correct me if Im wrong ).
