Just push

Question Wow : removing the air bag is NOT easy

So, I'm sitting here in car probing deeply into the 2 holes (5&7 o'clock) to release the springs that hold the air bag in place. R side (passenger side) went relatively easy but WOW the L side is not. I wonder if I have to angle the screwdriver outwards for this side or something different? All's I know is that 45" if probing has not released the other side... frustrating

Anyone have words of guidance? I hate to push the R side back into place & drive to way-over-priced dealer with my head hung in shame (plus my dealer is always booked out 2 wks : by time they'd get to me we'll have snow on the ground)

Any help is appreciated!

Answered my own question. Between original poster & the very nice .pdf that was uploaded, I was able to see that springs are oriented opposite of each other. By pushing outward on each side, able to remove airbag. After airbag out of way, total time to finish was about 10 minutes. Kudos to both posters

In the original post the part number for the new style shifters is said to be 32306795939 (confirmed).

When I look, that appears to be the bog standard shifters as fitted to my 35is 2010 which are the normal PUSH/PULL versions.

Be careful if you go ahead & order anything based on this post - looks like a mistake. I'm pretty certain that the new style PULL/PULL shifters are a completely different part number.

Like an idiot, I trusted the original poster (& fell for the 'confirmed') so I ordered the part from my BMW dealer.... expecting the same levers I already have fitted to turn up in a few days time.

Looks like the actual correct part number for the PULL/PULL shifters is 32306799619.

Brilliant.

Matt

Any used paddle shifters for sale?

Anyone selling any of these paddle shifters (used)?

I let my 3 year old play inside my Z4 and looks like he broke the right paddle (it is just flapping in the wind now LOL).

I would take the old style one OR the new style.. I just can't bring myself to spend almost $400 on the new OEM replacement part from BMW..

Thanks!

Set of rocker switches 32 30 6 795 939 Is not correct. That is the part number for the paddles already on the e89's. So what is the actual parts number for those paddles?
