Hey, Does anyone know where to find interior body panels? I have encountered the classic problem of separated interior panels and need some new ones. Usually junkyards are not a very good place to get them because, by that time the moisture has caused the vinyl or leather to seperate. Another problem is finding panels that match the rest of your interior.

Had the same problem on my 94 325iS. I was able to remove the panel (cove piece) and carefully peel back the bubbled vinyl covering. Some was easy, other parts were difficult. Reglued the vinyl back a bit at a time. You need very strong glue (trim adheasive not good), I used contact cement like that used to glue plastic laminate. Coat both sides then press together when partially dry. Results were very good on one panel, however the drivers side panel came out "lumpy" because vinyl was stretched on removal. Would like to purchase a replacement but the dealers want to sell the entire door panel.

What's teh cove piece? Is that the part that contains the door handle and everything? Because that is peeling from my door panel.

Yep. The "cove piece" easily pulls away fron the larger door panel. Just remove what's holding it. (protector around inside door handle slides forward or back I forgot). I wish this could be purchased sepatetely.
