BMw sells a repair clip for that.

The metal clip attached on the door are supposed to slide into a hole on the back of the door panel, but because the door panel is made of such crappy material, its wood and glue.... the holes break. the clip that BMW sells slides on top of the hole and reinforces it.

And this you can only get it at the dealer///

if needed ill send you the bmw repair bulleting on this issue.

I drive an IS and the passanger side door did that same thing. I just used my palm and snapped it back into place (I had asked a mechanic before I did that, apparently it just happens sometimes.)

Thanks so much for this post! I have that problem with the top part of my door panel. the holes are broken so the metal clip doesn't hold anything. I was about to glue my door panel on as I am so sick of it popping off everytime I close the door. I will give this a try.

Thanks again!
