Need to replace the mirror switch on my Audi 1999 A6. Can't figure out how to remove center console.


I replaced mine a few years ago and don't remember having to remove the center console. I think I just "popped" it out. If I find the instructions I used I'll post them.

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.
