Removal of top part of centre console - any tips to avoid disaster

Martin Ellingham

Recommended Posts

2001 auto. When I bought the car the ash tray top had been left open and whacked from one side so that the hinge mountings and switch lever were broken off. The cover is fine but the ash tray and cigar lighter unit needs replacing. Looking at the manual I need to remove the top of the centre console (arm rest to ashtray) in order to remove and then replace the unit. Fine. The manual simply shows four arrows and invites me to remove the top part. Presumably held with plastic clips. Any tips? Should I wait until this year's summer day to try it?
