Exhaust bypass valve solenoid?

How do I disconnect the exhaust bypass valve solenoid?
I want to do this so my Procede V5 CAN clear function works properly.
It wasnt hard to find on my 335 and 135 but I dont have any clue where to look on the Z4.

It's on the passenger side muffler towards the tip. Just feel around you will find it ASAP.

Thanks for your reply. I also noticed that the valve is in the passenger side exhaust tip but I didnt see any simple connection in the passenger (right) side of the trunk. I will digg a bit deeper tomorrow.

Just reach your arm under the car and pull the vacuum line off, plug the line, and zip tie out of the way.

Aha! But will that trigger the shadow code?
Without the shadow code the Procede wont auto clear tuning codes.

Thx

Nope no codes will be thrown by unplugging the vacuum line, the codes come from unplugging the actual plug.
