Jmiller911 is an unknown quantity at this point
Has anyone ever replaced the fake wood trim panels in their interior. I recently bought a 2000 328i that has a cracked wood panel on the glove box. Can anyone give me advice how to remove it to replace it.

Thanks
Jim

Yes it is above the glove box, sorry. So you are telling me it is glued or does it just snap off?

It is not glued. It has pins on the back that press fit into retaining clips. Open the pass. door and gently pry the trim off with a protected flathead screwdriver.
If you find where to buy individual pieces of the Myrtle wood trim let me know as the pass door arm rest on my car has cracked.

#1 its real wood. all bmws have real wood
#2Mach 5 is right, they are attached with metal screw pins. just pry out the wood trim gently on one side and it shall come right off
