DIY - G30 M Sport 5'er Painted Front Camera Cover

Guys,

Here are the DIY for replacing the Gloss Black Cover in between the Kidney Grill of this G30 5-series.
This DIY works for both M Sport and Non-M Sport package.

Currently I only have Alpine White finish for Surround View Camera equipped vehicle or Parking Assistance System Plus (5DN) Option.

More color may come in the future for both with and without the camera, depending on the demands.

So, here are the DIY, I also attached the pdf file.

Tools needed:

- Flat screwdriver or pick

Step 1: Removing the Kidney Grill
- Take off the Kidney Grills to allow you accessing the cover.

Step 2: Removing the cover
- Use the flat screwdriver or pick (in my case, screwdriver works much better) to unclip the top part from each corner.

- Pull gently using your hand to undo the middle clips. One on each side.

- Once you have all of the top and middle clips undone, use your hand to pull forward the tip of the bumper that is holding the bottom of the cover in place. You may use a little force to clear the camera lens and the tip of the bumper.

Step 3: Install the painted cover in reverse and install the kidney grill back in place.

Thatís it and good luck on the DIY project.
