The screwdriver handle is shaped to remove and replace the oil fill plug.
Page 82 in the owners manual has all the information about removomg the panel and what tools are supplied.
If all else fails, Read the Instructions

Great pic (and bags.) Has anyone popped the screwdriver handle to see if there is a 13MM at the top to adjust preload? BMW would do something like that…

Using the handle for suspension adjustment
Holy crap, you are joking, right? We need to draw pictures? How do I put gas in the gas tank, video on how to put air in the tires please.
Where do I put the key to start the motor?

AGAIN: If all else fails, Read the Instructions Page 85

Could always have a vote to see how many members knew that. 🤷‍♂️

How about some people just go look on the internet to see if there’s a community of people with a similar interest, where they can learn and share knowledge. There might be people there that know everything.

Knew what, how to read the freaking directions or how get on the phone and email for someone else to read the instructions for them?
Or even visit a forum to see some hints and pics.
Can’t say the instruction manual is the most enlightening of reading. I quickly figured that when trying to decipher the instructions for rear wheel removal.

Still smiling at your ‘Cheese’ comment the other day.

The moment I lost some colleagues. Stood by and waiting for her to sink so we could dive on her and salvage what was possible.
