Guys...posted this to the 5 series board, but got no response (much fewer users who aren't as savvy as you all)...think the answer is simple and figured one of us knows the answer on how to take the OBC out of the dash:

"The lights on my on-board-computer have gone out ('95 525i). While I can still get OBC information in front of me on the dash by pushing the turn signal in, I want the OBC to be visible as well.

I believe that there are bulbs in the OBC that can be replaced, but I don't know the steps for pulling the OBC out...does anyone have that info to share?"



Thanks!

No mods - - - very happy as is!
<span style='color:green'>1995 525i </span>- - - 154,000 mi.
No squeaks or rattles... unreal!

Yeah there is, if it's the same as the e36 then there's a little hole up underneath the obc from the sunglasses holder.

I would be pretty sure it can just pop right out...however...I did it with my AC unit. I have a real good swiss army knife I keep in my car and I popped open the flat bottle/can opener attachment. Its real thin and I just slid it in and pried down gently, but with some force as not to hurt the dash in any way. I did this at all the corners or as close to the corners as I could and the AC unit popped out easily. It slides right back in as well...Hope this helps somewhat...
