  • Removing centre console

    Pull out ashtray, and use old credit card to prise up trim surrounding it from the bottom (glossy inverted 'U' trim). Pull out ashtray housing and disconnect wiring to cig lighter. Pop off two 'L' shaped trim pieces either side of console beside seats (from gear lever to carpet), move seat fully back for easy removal, they clip on/off, sometimes on removal a clip stays put co just pull off and reattach to trim piece. Use card to prise off the gear-lever gaiter. On right hand side remove 3 bolts on metal 'ruler type' piece' (half behind carpet) and unclip 2 wiring connectors behind. Move seats forward and remove screw either side on rear of console. There are 4 screws at the front, 2 either side, one high up (all 10mm i think) and one low down either side. Lift console up and backwards to remove. Done.

    Cant think what would be rattling around though, theres nowhere here for bits to roll about.

    Hi buttons, thanks for the info on how to remove the centre console. I had a irritating sliding something coming from inside console, so took apart to investigate. I took some photos which may help others.

    Lift and remove:

    Removed the vent trunking, third screw easily seen, twist trunking to remove.

    Removed offending item! 😀

    Removed and checked armrest vent grill

    All intact, so must have been damaged & replaced previously ☹️

    Reverse to refit... simples, took about 30-40 mins.

    Hope it helps!
