I wanted to replace my rear shocks on my 2013 135is convertible. How would one go about finding the top shock mount in the trunk? I can't figure it out, and online videos seem to be just for the E82.

Edit: never mind, I found it. Just had to peel everything back. 😀

It's beneath the trunk liner. You have to either remove the liner or bend it out of the way.

I didn't even know they were accessible from inside the car. that's great. I don't have to drill holes for my remote dampening adjusters like I was thinking I would
