Painted Front Center Console

Recommended Posts

Many thanks to Loren and Scouser for helping with my wiring issue on the spoiler switch. It operates and illuminates!

Now...when replacing my front center console (U-shaped plastic part), the top edge of the piece does not fit snugly/flush up against the dash behind it. I can still feel a SMALL lip/tag on the black plastic part that is attached to the center air vents, but the console piece does not engage these tabs. Hence the piece tends to bow out at the top. Is there a clip that I am missing? Is there an easy fix for this problem? Thanks in advance...again.

There should be locking tabs on the back of the U shaped part that lock into clips in the vent and the sides.

Thanks Loren. My U shaped part has several locking tabs along the sides, but on the top I have just some rectangular holes. Are there supposed to be some metal or plastic locking tabs on the U shaped piece along the top? Or are there supposed to be metal clips on the vent piece? Any pics (2002 C2, US car)?

Should be clips at the top that engage above the vent and tabs on the side that engage in clip on the sides of the vent.

Top clip


Side tabs


Well, I am definitely missing those top clips. I wonder if they popped off when I removed the console cover. Do you have a part number for the top clips?
