BMW E53 X5 Navigation LCD Screen Replacement DIY

This video details how to remove the OE Navigation system from a E53 X5 as well as the process and procedure for replacing a defective LCD screen. My screen had some dead pixels on it, that is why I replaced it. This will also work on any similar model BMW that has an MKX nav computer, typically found in the E38, E39, E46, E86, E85 and E83 cars. Printable directions can be found here (I did not create these directions, I used them as a reference): The replacement LCD screen can be purchased here: This video uses a trim removal tool, which can be purchased here: Note: THE USE OF THIS DIY IS FOR YOUR REFERENCE ONLY. I DISCLAIM ALL LIABILITY FOR DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR INJURIES THAT RESULT FROM ANY USE OF THE EXAMPLES, INSTRUCTIONS OR OTHER INFORMATION IN THIS DIY.

BMW E53 X5 w/ DSP aftermarket stereo system installation and upgrade
This is a video showing a stereo upgrade to my 2002 4.4 X5. I replaced the factory head unit with a double DIN touchscreen HU and replaced the DSP amp with a 2 channel amp. I removed the front speakers and installed two-way coaxials and lastly removed the factory subwoofer and installed a DIY sub box with 10" driver and amp. I skipped quite a few steps as there is plenty of information on the web and youtube. For reference, you may want to look at the following pages if you're doing an install from scratch.
