That thing drives me nuts and it's probably because I have wimpy/sensitive ears. The thing sounds like it came out of a dryer :LOL:

It sounds like it's coming from the cluster or possibly behind the climate control unit? Does anyone know?

It's behind and to the right of the cluster. I converted mine to a BMW "ding".
Don't just unplug it, or other items won't work right. You'll have to open it and physically disable the buzzer.

Here's a DIY I did on converting it to a BMW chime.

Didn't the later W140s replace the buzzer with a 'ding' also? I'd love to change mine too. That buzz is pretty awful.

I don't know about the later cars. I think that buzzer is totally out of character for these cars. I've done the mod on two cars now, and it works great.

Put your seatbelt on before you start the car, and turn off headlights before opening the door. Buzzer disabled ;)
