They just replaced mine under warranty and it now has a felt inlay. So take it to another dealer (it does not have to be the dealer you bought the car from). Give them no star and leave a bad review and you would be contacted later by their marketing dept for why the bad review

My 2018 540i under-dash cubby was replaced under warranty at 28,000 miles. /exthree

Fixed mine with a warranty claim.

The replacement part is now lined with felt-like material and the coins are no longer rattling in it.

The latch seems to have been improved too!

+1 Much better. As it always SHOULD have been.

This just happened today in my 2019 540 with 5,000 miles. Guess I will call the dealer tomorrow. It seems like a pretty cheap design.

Mine refused to close after many attempts - having let the temper cooled down, I found that there was a coin in the bottom that was causing the problem. Moved it and it closed fine - I would totally empty the thing and see if then closes. I think it isnít designed for storing small coins etc which is a bit odd !

It was a design flaw. I never stored coins there and it still failed.

But it was a small annoyance. It failed almost immediately but I waited until it was in for maintenance service to have it replaced. Wasn't worth a separate trip.
