Thanks very much for the video...exactly what I needed to see how to do this...bit of a heat wave here so important job to get done immediately.

Couple of notes:
You don't need to remove the hinge on the glove box...just remove it all as one unit. It's definitely better that way on my 2002 330Cic because there's wires going between the main glovebox and the door of the glovebox...they don't really come out separately. I think it has to do with locking the glove box to prevent the trunk from opening with the valet key.

Also the screws were not missing on your resistor. When you remove the module infront of the resistor you are actually unscrewing the screws for the resistor as well.

Again...thank you very very much as the Bentley manual explanation was really inadequate. Pictures worth 1000 words...video is priceless.

Just finished swapping mine. This was SO helpful. Particularly the "...this is backbreaking work..." comment in your narrative. It sure is - I was sweating profusely.

One point of note - the first few steps of disassembly can be skipped, the 6 screws holding the glovebox in can be removed first and the entire assembly pulled out in one piece, rather than removing the hinge, the glove box door, then the glove box internals.

I couldn't have tackled this without this DIY. Thanks!!

Yup, I think I added a note to the vid on to just skip that step as you said. Thanks again!
