How To - Disassemble Center Console Area


Recommended Posts

Hi, I damaged my girlfriend's Boxster center console area. A piece of trim got scraped... I need to disassemble it and was lucky enough to find a parts car. Does anyone have experience disassembling the center console area (the plastic that sits in the middle of the car where the seat warmers are, the change holder, and up to the navigation unit and down to the lockable console). It's a 2001 Boxster S.

Repairing her seat has already cost me a few hundred bucks :) I'd like to minimize costs on the other repairs! :)

Thanks in advance.

It's easy to do, you'll just have to twist it a bit while clearing the passenger seat (cover the corner of seat while removing to avoid scraping it w/ the console which has sharp edges). You can either search for short shift install in the archives here and read many posts w/ tips or just follow these instructions from B&M

Read thru them a couple of times first to make sure you're familiar w/ all the screws holding it in. Once they're all free, it'll come out easily w/ a slight twist to get it to clear the passenger seat.

Good luck!
