Stuck plastig nut trying to take off GM5

Hi all,

I'm trying to take the nut off that holds the metal frame to the gm5 module. It's at the bottom of the metal frame.

Any tricks to getting it off? Thanks!

Ask in the general forum. Also check out the guide for removing the gm5 at bmwgm5.com

Thx. I hate ads that cause the page to jump as you're clicking on a link.

>>...bottom of the metal frame.
Metal frame. The general module is in a plastic frame and the nut at the bottom holding the frame takes a 10mm nut driver.
If it's not coming off then pry up with a flat blade screwdriver while turning CCW.
