I think you are talking about the 'hood cowl.' I need to replace mine too. You can order it off of www.bavauto.com. It is aruond $65. It's a big piece if you look at it and it goes flush aginst the bottom part of the windshield, your wiper blade arms go through it and i believe there is a little vent in there too. Hope that helps. If you can post a picture that would help us.

It is cheaper than that from the dealership, as I recall mine was only $35ish... or maybe it was $35 per piece... dun know, but call and find out.

I just changed mine yesterday. For all E36s it comes in 2 pieces. Each is $25 from the dealer. I paid $53 total, and replaced them in 15 minutes. You don't need new clips - just move existing ones to the new panels.

Replacing procedure is simple:

1. Pop the hood.

2. Unscrew & remove the windshield wiper arms off the base after popping off covers.

3. Remove 2 plastic wide-top screws on passenger side.

4. Starting with driver-side, pull the panel outwards (straight up).

5. Repeat for passenger side.

6. Move all clips to corresponding locations on new panels.

7. Replace the passenger-side cover, snapping in place and replacing plastic screws.

8. Replace driver-side cover.

9. Re-attach wiper blade arms.

10. Enjoy the new look : )


I also had to clean a lot of crap from underneath my old panels, and washed the base of the windshield with soap.

Are the hood cowl and weatherstripping two different things? I'll post a pic here soon.

In the highlighted area of the pic you can see the hood cowl. It is the big plastic piece that goes along the bottom part of the windshield. Bavarian Autosport sells this for $65 bucks. It's a large piece. Is this what you are talking about?[attachmentid=21094]

Deloriant - I had my driver's side weather stripping replaced. One piece goes around the top of both the front window and the smaller back window, and the other piece goes along the bottom of the smaller back window. If I remember correctly it was around $180 from dealer for both pieces. It is actually called the "drip molding"

As far as the front windshield piece, is that what you are talking about in the pic?

Yeah - I guess the right name's hood cowl. Maybe Bavauto sells it in one piece - the factory installation is two pieces though ($53 incl. taxes).
