So you don't have the tools in the toolbox in the trunk?

No,I don't have the tools in the toolbox in the trunk?
Expert:  Steve replied 8 years ago.

In that case, you should be able to do it with a screwdriver or metal ruler or something similar.

Best case would be to borrow the tools from somebody else with an E36 though...
