Hey everyone
Im wondering if you can tell me how to get the plastic side parts of the middle. The bit that goes from centre box down side of gearshift to under the dash? Previous owners did not take care of it so I want to paint it up

to get tat ou t u have to take the whole centre console out. from memory there are 2 screws on the side down the bottom near the rear of the console, 2 screws on the console bin thing and 2 screws under the auto selector thingy. u will also have to take the shifter knob off too

Ok you need to lift up the shifter surround, two screws there, some more in the centre console under the little piece of carpet and one on each side at the back of the console, move the seats foward. Also your shifter is round the wrong way, losen the nut and unscrew it, you can play with the nut to get the shifter the right way around.

also before you through paint on it - you might need to check if you have to prep it first!!!

The screws at the back of the console are down the side near the back of the front seats, you have to pull the seats forward to get at them.
