E46, need id on missing trim on outside of door and cable from OEM stereo

3 posts in this topic

i've spent the better half of today replacing the OEM tape player with a pioneer deh7300bt. a simple mod for anyone car savvy, but i'm not so am quite pleased with myself for being able to get it done, cuts and scrapes aside by rerouting the harness via the back of the plastic housing as i couldn't get the top air vents off.

during the process of unplugging the old one, there is the top cable in this picture which i have no idea what its for, there doesn't seem to be any space on the new HU for something like that. it seems to work fine without it, whatever it is though.

also, what is the name of the part i'm looking for, here are pictures of the white plastic holders for whatever was meant to be at the bottom of the door: link1, link2

The top cable looks like the plug for a GPS sensor, I'm guessing the car didn't have sat nav, so not sure why it's be there.

The white clips are just trim clips for holding the sill cover/side skirts on.

deffo no sat nav, it had a tape player not sure how a satnav would've fit in there but it was plugged into the tape deck when i removed it.
