    Removing center console

    Hi guys,

    how do you remove the center console (around the radio).

    Want to remove it and wrap in in carbon as mine looks a little worn...

    Have a look at the workshop manual stickies mate, there is one that covers the interior that should help..

    I have removed the whole centre console before to convert from double DIN to single DIN but it was a while back and I can't remember how lol...

    A3Tom wrapped his centre console in carbon...

    My carbon wrapping efforts....

    Its easy to take off.

    Pull the ashtray out and take out the screw at the back
    Pull the radio out and there's a screw on each side holding the surround in...take them out
    Then start to pull but take care as it clips in above the hazard/heated seats switches at the top.

    I think its only 3 screws but just double check before you start yanking!
