Armrest Bump Stop

Hi guys,

I have na F30 and recently I discovered that one of the bump stops from the armrest is almost gone, do you have any idea where I can find such a small thing to buy?

I added a picture to be more precise.


Thank you in advance

They're not sold by BMW but there are plenty of sources for something that would work. For instance:

These are not independently listed on RealOEM, so you'd have to purchase the whole armrest (used/wrecked) to get the piece. It will be much easier to use something like Billfitz has recommended.

Are those pieces held in place by adhesive or are they a grommet style plug?

I don't think it would be too difficult to source a rubber plug if they are fashioned that way, or the adhesive style also easy to find (glass table tops come to mind, the little soft plastic buttons where the glass meets the table base)

thx guys, I'd probably go with something that I will find in the stores and stick it there with adhesive.

I thought that it may exist something special to fit like the OEM ones.

It does exist, BMW buys them from somewhere. That somewhere would be an industrial supplier that only sells to manufacturers, in quantities of perhaps 1,000 pieces.
