DIY for UGDO?

Does anyone have a current DIY for the UGDO (Homelink transmitter)? The usual Circle BMW and BMW Nation links appear to be broken. It would figure since mine just came in from eBay.

um...

1) take a flat head screw driver, pop the cover off
2) uplug connectors to completely remove the cover
3) cut (on the back side) an opening using an exacto knife
4) pop the UGDO in until you hear it clip
5) plug connectors in
6) pop cover back on.



I didnt think a DIY was needed.

Ha, that's assuming that my installs always go according to plan, which they never do. There was something about peeling away the headliner material away from the frame and cutting out the mounting hole that I wanted to check up on.

You must be referring to finding the ugdo connector. Once you pull the panel/cover off, there are 3 or so connectors tucked above the passenger side visor area. You need the white one with 3 wires and it's the only one that will fit the ugdo box. You may find black felt-like tape wrapping it almost completely. As for the cut-out/mounting , it'll be readily apparent where you need to cut as there's an outline on the inside of the cover. Good luck.

I've attached some pics.
