It should be under the left side of the steering column, you will need to get in and look up.

i looked there. i did not see it. what should i be looking for
It is just a little rectangular cover. Check the side panel around the hood release. Also check under the glove box.

this is a very general answer... i was expecting a bmw expert. no offense intended

It is under the left side of the steering wheel and is a rectangular plastic cover that opens up. I don't know how much more descriptive I can be.

that does not look exactly like my car but close. ok, so how do i access it? do i pul it down, unclip it or what?
It is just a little plastic cover. There will be a spot to use your fingernail to pry it open. It is straightforward
