Excellent thread however I,like the latter posts are having extreme difficulty extracting the right (cars) side flap. this is a 1993 318is (US style) and it has a different flap. The covering is white plastic and does not resemble the pictures or have the thorax bolts to remove. The opening cable control runs beneath the cover and to the right side (passenger) side for flap control. Two small metal clips connect on the outside of each of the side flaps but I cannot seem to release the top area of the right (passenger side) flap. This side is the obvious side for extraction and if the #$@$ flap would release it would be a snap. Thanks for the thread thus far, esp TitaniumCranium.

Reason: wrong year of manufacture
