Remove all the screws from the panel. Some may be hidden under tabs than can be pried off. Make sure all screws are removed, then gently pry off the panel with a flat-tipped screwdriver. Once the panel is completely loose, lift it up and off.

Hi, The drivers side exterior door handle is not working on our BMW X5, the handle appears to be loose and slightly sitting out further than it should be. Can anyone tell me what is the best proceedure to...

stop by your local auto parts store and ask for a trim removal tool. they will hook you up with the right stuff. Start by removing all the screws you see in the door panel, such as those holding the arm rest in place. taking the trim tool, feel around the outer edge of the door panel for the clips that hold it in place. when you find one, put the tool around it and pry outward until the clip comes out of the door. do this until you have the panel free.

Once the panel is off, you will be looking for a loose rod sitting inside the door that will need to be reconnected to the handle.

Good luck.

How can i remove door handle of bmw X-3

If you have the door panel off already. you have to look at the back of the door latch mechanism. you will see where the wire for the door handle hooks to the door. If you are starting you have to be very careful in removing the screws for the door panel look for the hidden screws under caps with cutout.there should be a toric screw where the door handle is and another one close to where the mirror mounts. again look for caps

My x5 bmw driver door willnot open from outside

It sounds like the handle may be broken, or the linkage may be broken or disconnected

On the inside trim, you can remove screws (these screws may be covered by filler pieces or may be visible, or they may require you pry a plastic piece off that covers the screws) that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Pull back the weather seal and then you can gain access to the exterior handle
