Short answer: Yes.Two questions:
1- So the rear interior panels are different from the coupe, in that there's a top and a bottom piece, and the center leather bit needs to come out to access the lower piece? That threw me the first time I saw it.. So even to play with speakers and trim and whatnot I'm going to need to pull that and break some tabs, so I should just order a bunch and keep them handy, right?
Unfortunately no. I posted a thread already asking if others had photos with the fabric removed from the frame. No luck.2- Do you have more photos like this one with everything removed?
The lines are all visible with the top articulated in various positions. If you would like to take photos and trace the lines I am certain this will help others and be a welcome addition to this thread.I am hoping to never have to take the covers off, but if you have lots of pictures it can be useful for studying and learning. ESPECIALLY if (if possible) the lines and their numbers are traced over it. Different colored lines maybe? Who knows. Asking a lot, I know.
If any of these lines should be bad, here are your options:Update:
Info on the line numbering:
0/1 - pump to valve block
11/14 - pump to passenger storage lid cylinder
12/13 - pump to driver storage lid cylinder
21/22 - valve block to driver main lift cylinder
23/24 - valve block to passenger main lift cylinder
31/34 - valve block to driver bow tension cylinder
32/33 - drivers bow tension cylinder to passenger bow tension cylinder
I notice you offer extended lines 31/34. Do these lines also suffer the same problem of being stretched too tight as the top moves?31/34 - There are two versions depending on the age of your bow tension cylinders.
1) Early models (2000-~2003) have these two lines crimped into an aluminum block and cannot be separated from the cylinder. These lines have to be replaced at Top Hydraulics - you have to send in your cylinder with the lines attached.
2) Later models (~2003-2006) have these lines detachable from the cylinder. Top Hydraulics can send you replacements. Note that these lines are not available from BMW - they want you to buy a pair of cylinders instead...
