pretty sure you can get the BDM out without removing the heaterbox.

and the BDM unscrews from the metal bracket which is riveted in

yep,

You can remove + install the BDM complete with bracket without removing the heaterbox. I've done 6 of them and high series cars a more painful as the sound deadner is more dense and thicker above the BDM.

use a chisel or a long drill bit to remove the rivets.

Ok, so I understand/see how you can chisel off the rivets from the side while it is still in the car, but how do you attach it to the receiving car?

Stand by for another dash removal . . :cry:
Is your dash in, or just pulled forward ??(you can connect everything with the dash 30cms or so forward).
The only thing I'd suggest if you put the dash back, is to check the dash unit is plugged in correctly, and you can hear the BDM run when you do a self test. Can you hear it run ??
