Removing upper center console (SatNav and PRND button piece)
This part is fastened by just 4 clips. Use a pricking tool and insert between vertical center console plate that holds the radio display and the upper center fascia. Try one side first, then other side. If that rear facing part is loose, lift that end slightly (approx. 2-3cm), use a priicking tool at the side of the fascia approx. 10 cm rear of front corner. Try one side first, then the other. Afterwards the fascia trim panel can be moved back- and slightly upwards for some centimeters only since the pushbutton cables are not long enough. Disconnect them (tiny fingers appreciated) right behing the pushbuttons. The original SatNav will be not be affected at all. However the modified SatNav unit will be lifted together with the fascia trim panel.
Removing center console
This describes how to remove the center console (from saddle between the rear seats till radio)
- Remove the middel part of the saddle (between subwoofer mesh in Coupe and center arm rest) by pulling front end upwards. This part is only fixed by a fir tree in the front, the rear goes below the subwoofer mesh.
- Remove the Arm rest: At the rear end of the arm rest there's now a screw visible. It's not centered but more on the right side. Remove that screw.
The arm rest now can be moved a little front- and backwards. Move backwards as much as possible. Now lift the front part of the arm rest for approx 1cm and move the arm rest slightly forward. Then take it out.
- Remove the center conole (some buttons, boot release, door lock button, center cubby (automatic) or gear lever location (manual), ash tray): At the rear end there are two screws visible; remove them. Slightly lift at rear end only; it might still be stuck. In that case apply a little more power until that part comes off. Carefully remove the electrical connectors if necessary.
- Removal of radio: There are two screws visible at the lower end. Remove them. There are also screws at the upper end, which need to be removed. That can only take place after removal of the upper fascia (see topic above). After upper fascia and screws are removed, the radio unit can be pulled in horizontal, slightly upward direction.
