  • Locate the screw in the bottom right hand side of the console, just above the coat hanger hook.

  • When removing the screw, be careful to prevent the screw from falling into the console. Use your finger to clamp it against the screwdriver to ensure it does not slip off.

  • Remove the 12mm long #2 Phillips screw with a #2 screwdriver.

Schritt 2  ¶ 

Lower the cup holder and trash receptacle to allow better access to the bottom lip of the console trim. Be careful when popping off the console trim.  Delicate wires controlling the AC and cigarette lighter are attached to the front face.  A forceful pull may break the connections.
