    side gill/grill/vent removal and replacement

    hi, one of the roundel badges on my side vent/gill/grill needs to be replaced. Any instructions on how to remove and replace? I did a search and could not locate. TIA

    That's a first, so we haven't got anything on that. I'd maybe look in the TIS link here - https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/e52-z8-roa/

    I think you have to remove the vent first and than you can remove the clips and replace the roundel.

    yes, I searched vent grill gill for For BMW Genuine Body Trim Molding Front Left 51138231939 removal and cant find any instructions. I agree the vent needs to come out to replace roundel.
