How do I remove the rear console lid?

Recommended Posts

Well, I just got the aritc silver aluminum look rear console this morning :jump: ........but I just got 95% with the removal of the old one and installation of the new one. Only problem is that the hinge and lid assembly appear connected by 2 rivets????? How in the world is this supposed to be removed to put on the new one??? :angry:

So here are two pictures showing where I have gotten. Looks like I need to have this metal bar installed on my new rear center console. Why? This bar appears to be riveted on (NOW WHY WOULD THEY DO THAT?).

Picture from rear shows that there are 2 upside down U shaped metal things that are inserted into the small cubby holes and the top picture show the metal bracket that has 2 rivets shot down into the U shaped things.

QUESTION: Do I just need to go to the dealer and tell them I need that bracket riveted onto my new console? I need to act fast since the console lid is in a million pieces on my dining table (top and bottom lid assembly, screws, springs, a couple rods, and a cloth "catch").

My poor lonely ALUM CONSOLE in the car is incomplete :(

Any console that has had a failed hinge (old hinge was plastic) has had the upgrade kit installed. The hinge upgrade involves pop-riveting the new metal hinge on. You have choices depending on the console - buy a new style hinge (if your new arctic silver console supports it), -- or drill out the pop rivets and move the hinge to the new console and put in new pop rivets -- or buy another replace hinge kit.
