You need to get an LCI IHKA probably and reroute a wire from your pre LCI harness accordingly. There is a discussion on this thread with some colleague which retrofitted CIC with LCI IHKA on his pre-LCI car and his fans would run at high speed without interruption and also the A/C compressor wouldn't kick in. After he analyzed the wiring of both pre-LCI and LCI , he came to know there are some differences in connections.

Do a search on Pin 21 on this thread. I have a pre-LCI but installed a LCI climate control. I didn't do the coding though.

Edit: Doh! Never mind. I misread the post.

You should now have the following collection of pieces removed from the car:



Here's the backside of the console with the iDrive controller still attached:



Here it is again with the controller removed:

Nelson, does the new iDrive controller have 2 connectors on it that looks like it will accept the wires you see in the shot above?

So that's pretty much it for removing the console. Once the new controller gets here next week, I can begin trimming the for the new iDrive.

Finally, here's a shot of the patient under the knife:



anyone know where i can get these pictures that dont show up anymore?
