My Ride: E46 2004 320I Wagon
BMW E46 wagon/touring interior trunk trim

I have a bmw e46 320i wagon (Australian market). The clips that hold the carpeted trim that covers both the CD stacker and the battery either side in the trunk / boot dont hold up anymore and both panels fall out everytime you turn a corner.

I have a spring and a small piece of plastic (flat and about 4cm by 2 cm) for each side and there do not appear to be any broken bits of plastic.

Being new here i may have missed a related thread but has there been a pictorial explanation of how to put it all back together? is this a common issue? a trawl of the internet is not throwing up any answers.

That is a great website, thanks!

So i have established i have all the parts as the pieces of plastic and springs I have found are:

22 Unlocking unit, left 1 51478261925
22 Unlocking unit, right 1 51478261926
23 RETAINER SPRING LEFT 1 51478261927
23 RETAINER SPRING RIGHT 1 51478261928

I just need someone to show me how it all stays together because frankly its a mystery!
