Floor Mat Fasteners

The following installation instructions came with the mats for my E36, basically shown as written.

Footmats (all models)

I. Installation for 3 Series E30, E36, 5 Series E28, 6 CS Series E24,

7 Series E23, The footmats and rubber mats are secured by means of fasteners which are screwed into the floor panelling.

  1. Place footmats in the foot areas in required position. Caution: Ensure that the accelerator pedal is not obstructed.
  2. The openings in the footmats indicate the position of the fasteners to be secured.
  3. Pierce the floor panelling with a pointed object and screw in the fasteners to the end of the thread.
  4. Install footmats, turn fasteners 90 degrees to stop.
  5. Caution: Once installed, the fasteners should not be removed, as this may damage the floor panelling.

II. Installation for 5 Series E34, 7 Series E32, E38, 8 Series E31

  1. Remove plugs from the fixture points in the floor panelling.
  2. Place footmats in the foot areas so that the fasteners fit into the fixture points. Ensure that with rubber mats the washers for the fasteners are placed above the mats.
  3. Turn fasteners 90 degrees, to stop. FLY BMW
