HELP!! DIY Exhaust Valve

Hello everyone,

So most of us are familiar with the Golf tee mod for the E92 and other model. I have know spent a couple hours trying to figure out how to open my vacuum line, whether from unplugging the connector or more difficultly to open the valve to the exhaust via removing a spring and adding wire.
Although I have seen this guide for other F models, I have not yet found a legit DIY step by step, and picture guide for a 2011 535i F10 Exhaust mod.

Im not sure if its different on every model but I cant seem to even find the part with the spring to remove near my exhaust to try and do it myself.

If anyone can help with a nice step by step, including pictures on how to do this mod not only will it help me, but many other members trying to do the same mod.

If your local, Orange county, CA I wont even mind paying a quick buck to get this done.

Thank you

Edit.. didnt see you had a 535. Assuming its like a 550.. Get 12" zip ties and wrap around the actuator arm and strap to the actuator mount while holding the flaps open. I used two on each side and its been holding up for a couple weeks. If you cannot find 12" ties just hook a few together...
