Re: Removing center (arm rest) console
Now remove the small (hidden) cover in the floor of the compartment behind
the h/b lever. You should expose two screwheads. Remove these two and the
centre arm rest console should lift away easily. You will probably find two
covers the smaller one is the one to remove, the other one is for the OBD
diagnostics connector (if not fitted to front of console or behind small
panel on dash).
All the best, Peter.
