For early cars 2002 to 2005  with BMW speedo it is possible to only release and lift the drivers side of the top dash on UK right hand drive cars  i.e. you do not need remove the cup holder  and vents on the passenger side as this takes considerable longer to do. There is enough flex in the top dash cover and if your hands are small enough to only lift the drivers side enough to get a a mini ratchet in there.

 

Always take photos of the needle positons before opening - e.g. how much fuel you have
