did you try just sticking meter probe or test light probe in the hole,dead center at back for indication of power to it? Careful not to touch sides if using test light, you will blow a fuse. Steady hand.

SOURCE: How to remove center console or where to get the diagram? Thanks Tony

In my 2004 Sierra the console is held in by the seat bolts. You will need a star 16 and 20 to get the seats out. There are 2 bolts that go into the dashboard also. There is a big electrical connection under the console that needs to be unplugged to get it out.

SOURCE: Gear stuck in park, how to remove center console,

Sounds like your shift lockout is not disengaging when you depress the brake. I don't know about Mercedes but the general way to do it is the solenoid in the console that is actuated by depressing the brake could be bad however i believe the power supplied to the solenoid comes directly from the brake switch. Can't answer your center console question sorry.

Remove center console from 2002 ford explorer. do I have to remove the seats?


I don't think you have to remove the seats. However any nuts, bolt or screws you remove you'll need to keep in case you're replacing the console.

Open the console and at the bottom you'll find two Phillips head screws.

Look at the front of the console, beneath the radio. Next to the coin holder area, is four bolts. Remove the four bolts with a ratchet.

Look at the center part of the console. There are two Phillips-head screws. Remove these with a Phillips screwdriver.

Pull the console upward to unhook it from the floorboard. Remove it from the Ranger. With the console removed, you'll see the mounting brackets for the console and the nuts the screws and bolts go into. It is not necessary to remove these brackets when replacing the console.

Move the replacement console into the cabin. Line up the console with the mounting brackets on the floorboard. The console screw and bolt holes should be lined up with the mounting bracket's nuts.

Hold the console firmly in place with hand. Insert and tighten the two Phillips-head screws in the console storage compartment, and then insert and tighten the four bolts at the front part of the console. Insert and tighten the two Phillips-head screws in the center of the console.

Hope I didn't over explain. Hope this helps.

I am trying to remove the center console of a 2003 chevy impala to install an after market radio. Can someone give me directions please?


There are 2 10mm bolts in the compartment hold of the center console that must be removed. Two similar 10 mm bolts must be removed at the front of the center console, near the driver's and passenger's lower legs. The top of the center console, where the shifter is located, snaps out. With this top piece removed, the cigarette and auxilary outlet can be disconnected. Four more bolts near the shifter bracket need to be removed, and then the console is free. Hope this helps someone. I needed to remove the center console to install a component for a car stereo.
