How do you add the under-dash shelf console?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My '99 Boxster does not have the shelf unit under the dash in front of the gear lever, and I'd like to add this unit to my car to get some extra storage space.

Has anyone had any experience of doing this? I've searched already and found loads of posts about deleting the console, but none about adding....

On the console delete posts, it looks like the console bolts to the floor via a steel bracket in front of the gear lever. Would the holes these bolts go into be there already on my car, under the carpet? Would I need to cut a piece of carpet out to fit the console?

Does the console physically attach to the underside of the dash, too?

Thanks

Greg

Hi,

Not sure specifically about the hole locations, and not sure what you currently have in that console space as there are options?

I have attached a diagram of the front console of your model for you with part numbers etc. that should help you. I would suggest

searching on eBay as they regularly have the storage compartments available for very little $$.

Also, I do not have a Boxster, but there are many experts on this site that I am sure will know more than I.

Good luck.

DC

Thanks for the info DC.

At the moment, I have nothing but carpet and a big empty space under the dash, so I'll need all of the parts on the diagram.

If anyone can tell me how this attaches to the floor (and if it is attached to the underside of the dash, too), that would be great.

It sounds like your car has the GT3 console delete. Find someone who has done the GT3 console delete and see if they still have their old parts, or find someone who wants to swap parts with you. If you search for console delete, the instructions should go through all the steps of what to take out and what to install. See the pictures in this topic to find out if that's what you have

Thanks Geoff - but I don't think my car has ever had the centre console. As far as I know it was a factory option (code M581), and this code doesn't appear on the sticker under the bonnet on my car.

Can anyone shed any light on whether the fixings for the console are already there under the carpet of the transmission tunnel?
