    Trim pieces on heated seat buttons

    Hi, I have studied the exploded view parts guides for the Z8 and I can't find the part number for the aluminum trim pieces that cover the heated seat buttons on the passenger and drivers side. My car is missing those and I would like to get new ones. Does anyone know the part #?

    Thanks!

    I can't see the trim pieces separately, but the whole button is 61 31 8 377 338.

    My car doesn't have covers, so maybe they were an aftermarket addition...

    Thanks Zeta, I guess I don't mean the covers. Instead the aluminum trim pieces on the seater heater buttons are gone. There is only black plastic.

    I am guessing that you have to buy the whole button...

    I am willing to do that. Is it the same button for passenger and driver?

    Yes, there is only one button listed (i.e. no left and right versions).

    thanks again! Where did you look this up?

    I am trying to find this part online, it does not cross reference with anything?

    found the part on real oem, now where to buy?

    How do I buy this part? Do I have to get it from the dealer? Looks like it comes in a set of 2.

    no one has this part listed...?

    Thanks again Zeta, this is very helpful. I did find the part on real oem. However, when I search the various part suppliers they all say it is not available. I am not surprised since it is probably an unusual part and the z8 was made in low quantities. I am better off with the dealer ordering the part from bmw?

    Unless someone else has an idea on a source, that would be my course of action...

    The best BMW source for OEM parts is Dana Caldwell at Peter Pan BMW, 650-294-2123 or email - [email protected]
    and let him know exactly what you'll need and he'll get it for you. I've seen these covers and some of the other aluminum interior facia parts come unglued - it is pretty rare, but does happen.
