    Looks like the forum has changed. I last asked for help identifying a part under mu '01 330CIC. It was a flat bar from the jacking area just infront of the rear weels that ran back to a point just in front of the spare tire location, one on each side forming a V. For those who offered assistance, I finally identified the part as a vibration damper. The part was in RealOME, but only findable by specific part number. New part cost me $60 plus $20 to install. I also asked about a plastic door/cover that retracted when the top was up and covered the hole one each side where the top frame retracted. The push rod and spring cost about $1.50, plus $20 to install.

    New problem..sometimes the top gets stuck during the open or close process. I know the previous owner had the top relay switch (54 34 7 025 596) replaced once. I now have a new switch that is a simple plug in, but I don't know where the switch is located on the car? I'll check RealOME, but if anyone can offer any assistance it would be much appreciated. Thanx.

    It's realoem.com - don't know

    It's realoem.com - don't know the ins and outs of your car, but if you have the part number for the relay, try searching that on realoem.com, maybe it will have a diagram.
