    If you read my project thread, you'll see pictures and know that I successfully removed the black dash from the 318i tonight. This is my first step towards a complete interior change in the 316i!

    My next step is to get the carpet out to clean it and transfer it.

    Is there anything I should know before I go about it? Where should I start? Will I need anything to... I don't know, stick it back in, or something???

    Obviously, I need to remove the seats and all that before I go about it.. I'm not completely daft!!!

    You will need to remove all 4 plastic trims inside the door shuts, all the footwell trim, b pillar trim. All of the seats need to come out as well as the complete centre console and lower part of the centre of the dash...
    To remove the carpet you may have to put a cut in it where it goes under the heater box behind the dash. You will have to cut it to install it as well but when the dash is re fitted you will not see the cut in the carpet...
