E93 Rear Seat Removal help needed

Any DIY info on that here? I need to remove the top part at a minimum to reach the EDC module.

I had the opportunity to replace a bad EDC-k module (!)

You can't remove the top part to reach the module; you will have to remove a bunch of stuff. I'm attaching the official instructions.

My experience:
- Use gloves or you will get bloody hands and knuckles.
- Put the top down for extra work space.
- Use a trim removal set.
- You have to remove the back seats (the whole thing), including the backrest, starting from the bottom part.
- You don't need to remove the rear console.
- Remove the trim for the ski bag, and then remove the ski bag.
- Use the trim removal set to pry the clips around the back part (they tend to fly far)
- Don't forget to line up the seat belts when re-installing the seats. Also, it will be really tight to wedge the last bottom seat part to make it clip and secure it.
- I tried to pull the module without removing the back part, but I couldn't reach. Remove the whole back part.
- Beers.

Once you install the replacement module make sure you code the replacement module. Very easy to do if you have the cable.

If you are going to disconnect it to use a non-electronic damper setup you will have to code the car to remove the VO for the EDC-k module.


Good luck!

I'm not sure if iCarly can recode the module. I used NCS expert to code the replacement module to the car.

Do you have the K-Dcan cable?
If you do, I can walk you through the process. It's very easy.
