My Ride: 325ci cabrio
Wind blocker cover hole

Hi all,

My E46 cabrio was missing the little cover on the rear passenger side where the wind blocker fits.

I purchased a replacement part, but it just sits there. What am I missing?

If I'm think of the right part that you are referring too, there is a black plastic base that has a threaded nut on it. The only way I could figure out how to replace mine was to pull the middle panel off so that I could get to that black plastic base and nut.

Thanks. That must be it. Yeah there is a partial thread on the other side. I didn't see the nut. Looks like I need to find a replacement part...
