: Does anyone know how to undo the trunk liner to get at the woofers in the E39?
I assume you refer to the the subwoofer unit under the package shelf.
Lie on your back under the unit (easier with fold down seats) and you will see 4 small bolts along the rear edge (one bolt on the drivers side is actually up under the lining and must be taken out last).
Remove all those bolts and the unit drops down at the back (rear of car end). It then pulls back till the support tabs come out of their slots at the front, and the whole unit drops down
- Caution - Heavy.
It comes down with the liner attached. That can be taken off once you remove the unit from the car.
If you have it out you may want to check the tightness of all the screws on the unit's top plate - some of mine were several turns from "tight".
