Phone Console howto take out?


Recommended Posts

Hi there

I have a factory installed phone in my 996 Turbo MY2002. The phone console that the headset was attached to is a bit shaky and not 100% mounted properly. I'd like to take it off and mount it/secure it properly however I couldn't find any screws to dismount it and I just dont want to pull as I'm afraid I could breakt something.

Does anyone have instructions on how the phone concsole is mounted to the center console?

Thanks

Ronny

Hi,

You need to first, take the headset off. My car is a German spec MY02 and had a Nokia headset. This has four screws attaching the phone holder to the the console.

With the headset out, you'll notice a round plug. If it is the leather version then it's next to impossible to pry it out without damage, but take care and do your best.

Under the plug you find a torx screw. Take it out. Then push the face panel of the console up until it slides off the two upper slots. Take it out.

Then take the two now exposed torx screws out. The console is now loose in the front. Reach down the console and push it out to the right of the car from the back of the console panel until it unclips off. That's it!

If the only way is to damage it then I cannot take it out and have to live with it being not 100% fixed. I have to keep it because my tomtom is mounted to it.

Getting back to this old thread: I looked into it with a borescope and saw that there are just clips holding the console so I could carefully pull it out without damaging any of the plastic clips. I couldn't mount it better however so its still not completely firm.

Er... No. Under the round plug there's a screw that holds the phone console to a bracket which is attached to the center console. The phone console has actually two standard metal clamps in the back and two plastic clips tight into the slots of said console. Not that simple then. You need to do the unscrewing otherwise you'll break the bracket.
