How to install Proclip/Brodit phone holder in E85

Hi,

Ok, I have one of these in my 320d so wanted the same in the Zed.

These are the parts & tools:

Image

Identify where to install it:

Image

Make the gap in the dashboard big enough to fit the Proclip:

Image

Ease the top of the Proclip into the gap then angle the bottom of it downwards, remove the adhesive from the bottom and push the bottom part of the clip down and around the base of the dash.

Image

Screw the back of the Brodit onto the Proclip them fit the front of the Brodit onto the rear:

Image

Get the correct angle, then slide the phone into the Brodit holder:

Image

All done, put the plastic bags in the bin.

I got the proclip and brodit from DSL Developments, here http://www.dsldevelopments.com/, nothing to do with me, I just like the products and have used them on the last three cars. Not cheap at £45 ish pounds, but good quality. The Brodit holder for my Nexus 5 also takes the phone with the Ringke Slim case on which is very convenient.

if you have a leather dash it may be necessary to loosen the screws - bottom 2 screws shown below. This is because the dash is tighter with leather

Nice one Taz,

Just for anyone that does have leather, it may be worth a try anyway as I did not need to loosen the screws.
Didn't want anyone to be put off with the second picture, it's a bit more hardcore than a standard brodit install
