Have you checked the trunk switch in the glove compartment to make sure it is on? Just a thought.

To remove the rear seats: there are two tabs for the rear seat bottom one on the left and one on the right, look at the front bottom of the seat cushion. Pull the tabs and lift up on the seat it should come out easily. Once the seat bottom is out you will have access to the mounting hardware for the seat back. Good Luck.

2007 BMW 328i trunk will not open


If trunk won't open on 328, open the pass through on rear seat, then use a walking cane or something else that hat a hook on end to reach the emergency release lever located on the inside bottom of trunk lid. I disconnect my battery for five months, and this is how I gain access to the battery. Also, check fuse box in glove box to see if the trunk activator fuse is blown.

Where is the battery located in a 2008 BMW 528i?


I have not looked at a current 5-series, but the traditional place for a BMW battery is beneath the plastic tray on the right-hand side of the trunk. If you don't find it there, perhaps they have moved it to beneath the rear seat where the 5-series used to have it back in the 1980s.
I understand that the new 5-series uses the same approach that Mercedes has used for some time. That is, they use electronic memory rather than mechanical stops to tell the windows, sunroof, seats, mirrors, etc. where the end-points are. That means it is a chore to reset the stops on everything if the battery gets disconnected. Best to avoid that problem by attaching another battery to the jumper cable points under the hood to keep the car powered up while you have your battery out.
If you are working on the air bags, then you have to power down the system, so far as I know, so you will need the owner's manual to give you instructions on how to re-set everything that has a memory.

I have a 1995 BMW 525 TDS SE AUTO.Where do Ifind the start battery??


The start battery? Or just the battery in general? Typically the 12 volt battery in a car is used to run the starter and that's it.

In your car it is in the back...yes the back, it is nowhere under the front hood so quit looking. Open the trunk, on the right side---and underneath the access panel is the battery.
