To remove the cassete you have to remove the head liner.
I agree with you taking the whole thing out to take it all apart and then fix good is the best thing, ive done it.

pretty much just rmeoved the head liner and then the cassete is some screws and it drops.

but to do the service within the cassete, i recomend you to purchase the bmw TIS and ETK cds from ebay, this will greatly guide you on your way of fixing this;

if you want so more help let me know. ive done this i know how it is..

The TIS and the ETK are also reliable. Even more info than the Bentley. am not very fond of the Chilton book.
