I did. I kept beating the focking thing. Beat it with mallet, a hammer, hammer and a pipe. Cursed and yelled at it too. Then I figured it out and started fist pumping in my garage. My neighbors were looking at me like I was weird.

I had flashbacks of my shifter knob removal incident.

For the record, I searched the forum and Bimmerforums. I couldn't find a clear pic of the correct orientation of the seals. Also, I found that I am apparently the only one who installed the seal backwards...or at least admitted it.
