When I took off the cover, I found this kind of box. Anyone know what is it and what is it for?

Can I remove it, because I want tu put an in-dash LCD screen instead of the cover, and I just can't with this thing.

noticed you have a 320i, not sure as to why the 320 has that there as the other models have a space there. what you're looking at has to do with your A/C system or the heater core, being that that sticker says behr on it. BEHR is a company that makes radiators, condensors and what not for A/C and heating, BMW has been using them for a very long time.:thumbup: hope this helps.

Yes i have tried to removed it but didn't succeed.
It's goes behind the A/C module, which i don't know how to remove.
If someone know how to remove the A/C please tell me

I'll try again this weekend.

I want to remove it in order to get space for an in-dash LCD screen (i want to leave the factory radio)

This afternoon I removed everything ... radio, A/C module.
Well it seems that this 'box' deals with the A/C module, so i'll just leave it.

The purpose of why I am doing this is that I don't have PDC on my car, and the local BMW asks me about 450euros (~450$) for it to be installed.
So for a cheaper price, I would like to place 2 rear view cameras with a LCD screen, which will cost less! :thumbup:
