    You'll need to check your ZKE, make sure it has 2 plugs on the back of it (A black plug, and a white plug). Then you'll need the switches up front, and the switches for the rear doors and all associated wiring to all the switches and motors. Obviously you'd need the motors, but I suspect you'd know that

    Can't be that hard to wire up at all, just depends how handy you are with electrics.

    The chances of the wiring already being there are quite remote !

    If your concidering doing this, then start with checking the ZKE for the 2 plugs on the back of the ZKE.... Because IIRC the white plug is used for the rear windows, and as yours doesn't have rear electric windows, the ZKE might not even have the slot in it for you to plug the thingy into... If you see what i'm babbling on about ?

    Not to hand I don't...

    If you remove the glovebox, look DIRECTLY behind where the glovebox was, and you'll see a long sort of module with a black, green and yellow connector on the front - You can't miss it.

    It''s #1 here: http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts...97&hg=61&fg=25

    Going by RealOEM, you should have both slots on the back !
