Im trying to get the center console off to paint the shifter trim but im having problems detaching the lighters. What do i do??!
ok, i had trouble disconnecting the lighters for some reason, and also, the top of the piece labeled in the picture wouldnt tilt any farther for me to get my hand in there to even try to disconnect it...yea the whole top of that console has to come off and then as for the 12 volt lighter sockets disconnect the wires to them and then just push on them really hard from the back side and they will pop out
i had trouble with this when i did mine. you can tell they push out but they are so hard to push that i thought maybe i was wrong and about to break something. but binicki confirmed they just push. so dont be afraid to push hard on those
just tried to do it your way, still gets stuck on the lower part of the HVAC controls.all you should have to do is pull up.. Put the car in nuetral or drive so the shifters not in the way and pull up and towards you. atleast thats what i do and it works for me.
I hope this helped
First off, take out your cupholder, till you have an empty hole there.ok, i had trouble disconnecting the lighters for some reason, and also, the top of the piece labeled in the picture wouldnt tilt any farther for me to get my hand in there to even try to disconnect it...
should i be taking off more of the panels?
Ok, i got it now. Thanks....runbigmama. lolFirst off, take out your cupholder, till you have an empty hole there.
then put on the E-brake, and remove the piece around that first (looks like you already did) the PUT THE CAR INTO THE LOW GEAR. pull up on the whole piece starting from the rear and it should lift over the shifter and gradually slide out.
If you still cant get it, let me know so I can post pics.
No offense, but its really not that hard.
you gonna do it red like i saw in your HVAC/Radio trim?lol thanks for the diagram. i look at that as i sit next on my couch to my center console. haha.
gonna mask it up and spray down the trim!
can you take a picture of it? id have to see it.
