### Abstract

We give a characterization of the internally $4$-connected binary matroids that have no minor isomorphic to $M(K_{3,3})$. Any such matroid is either cographic, or is isomorphic to a particular single-element extension of the bond matroid of a cubic or quartic Möbius ladder, or is isomorphic to one of eighteen sporadic matroids.
