Thank you SO much Tony... :)
Here you are, this was done by probably one of the first people to do this conversion. He had it down to a fine art and could do these in around 35 minutes. He is lefthanded which is a great help, also a small guy who could get right in the boot.

He simply pulled the pump into the boot and the pipes laid nicely into the corner.
Hope the pictures help.

I will post pics... one more question, is your pump held to the carpet or to the wall or is it just sitting there?

You can see in this one it is held to the “carpet trim” with a heavy duty cable tie. (Zip tie).

There is also a piece of carpet with Velcro attached to cover it over so you cant see it.

Hello all, newbie here. Done a few bits on my Z4 but this one might be a little beyond me. Anyone know anyone in the Surrey area who can replace a motor on a 2004 Z4. Or better yet relocate it to the boot?

Hello everyone. I successfully relocated the motor to the boot, but never got around to replacing the parcel tray as we had seldom used it. Considering an upgrade now so today got everything done except those pesky spring clips that hold the tray in place, ie the ones shown in the photo in gookahs very first post. Does anyone have any tips please. Very frustrated.

They only go in one way you have to orientate them correctly so they snap in also reach in from the boot for the rear two and over the seats for the front two
