How to Replace Clock Computer?

My clock/temperature computer next to the radio cassette player is broken..so I bought a new one. The only problem is ..how do I put it in? There seems to be no visable clips or anything. Does anyone have any idea?

Also my checklights uptop for the brake lights is always on even though there are no problems with my brake lights..does anyone know how to turn it off?

get a flat head screw driver and there is a little slit it should fit in.

is this the brake lining light? or this could be the disc wear depth indicator light.

might have to take it into bmw and get it reset

-Remove the radio
-There are 4 screws holding the OBC in place...accessible from the rear of the OBC through the radio hole etc...
- Unscrew all 4, disconnect wire and it's out.

Hope that helps
