  • Flathead screwdriver or other prying tool
  • Phillips screwdriver


Step 1

If a center armrest is not installed, remove 2 screws at the rear of the console. The same screws are used to hold down the console or to hold down the armrest – 2 phillips screws. You may have to pop a small plastic plate loose with your flathead screwdriver to get to the screws.

Step 2

If you have manual windows, you can just leave the little tray in.

Step 3

Remove screws at the front of the console. To get at the screws, you’ll pop the little black piece from in front of the fuse box on the passenger side (just grab & pull from the end toward the front of the car), and the same piece on the drivers side. There is one phillips screw on each side.

Step 5

Disconnect cigarette lighter. You should be able to slide the console out a bit for better access by now. There is a power plug on the back, and a light on the bottom of the cigarette lighter. Each just clips on, so use your prying tool to pop them loose (or you may be able to do it with your fingers).

Step 6

Remove the console. It should be loose and free of all wires now


Installation is the reverse of removal.
