Help Interior Parts removal

Could someone please direct me to a write up of how to remove the lower center console cover piece, the dash piece surrounding the stereo, and the side cover pieces on the inside of each door by the handle. I want to tranfer my CF interior pieces over to my lude and dont know how to remove them!

Re: Help Interior Parts removal

On the door, are you talking about the bezel that has the handle on it, or the one with the window switches? And for the one around the stereo, just get a flathead, wrap it in a shop towel, and gently pry up. You'd be surprised at how easily it comes out.

Entire center consul is screwed in with what I believe is a total of (6) screws, 3 on each side and then one on each side beneath the front fabric covered pieces. The fabric covered pieces beneath the dash on the consul just pull out.


The piece surrounding the cd player pulls straight out. As mentioned - the screwdriver method, or if you've got the finger strength - i just pull mine straight out by gripping it between the power slot and the thin lip in front of the empty space beneath the cd player.


the door handles have one screw in the center - behind a little round plastic tab. Remove the tab and screw, then push the entire piece towards the front of the car and pull at the front most portion at the same time. The front where the speaker sits behind has push in clips, and the back most end near the handle has a small stop basically. When you do this, don't expect it to come completely off. You need to carefully unhook the plastic clip holding the rod to the handle, and unplug the speaker/lock harness.

Re: Help Interior Parts removal

You don't have to remove the center console to install the CF trim kit, the center console is a overlay which just goes over the one that's already on. To install the door handle trim peices you have to remove the entire door panel to unscrew the peice.

Re: Help Interior Parts removal

Ok I got the center dash piece taken care of now I just need to do the doors and the center console piece. I know to do the doors I need to completely remove the door panel, but how to I take the center console cover off. It seems like its should come off without me having to remove entire center console piece.

Re: Help Interior Parts removal

I'm guessing center dash being....Radio bezel?....(trim around the stereo and climate control)

The center console piece...is a "stick-on"....you don't remove the whole part. What you do is basically use double sided tape and....stick it on top of the actual console. As another member said above....it is basically an overlay....not a replacement part like the radio bezel or door panel switch trims

The door panel is easy to take off. You can either use that video posted up or search "how to install SH courtesy lights" on google and it'll take you to my write and i've mentioned it there. There are also other How To's....that demonstrate how it is done.

Once you remove the door panel...you'll see 3 screws holding the trim in place....remove them and pop the OEM trim out and.....installation is pretty much the reverse.

Re: Help Interior Parts removal

Since he mentioned "transfer" I was under the assumption he wanted to swap the center consul vs removing the trim piece from the old consul. Saves the risk of damaging the overlay.

Re: Help Interior Parts removal

Lay your screws in a sorta diagram of where they came from. Some differ from others.

To me the hardest part is re-hanging the top trim back in it's groove upon re-installing the door panel.

Some of your 'keepers' at the bottom of the door panel may stay with the panel.. ie unattach from the door itself. Just pull them off the panel and re-attach to the door.
While it's apart it's a good time to inpect moldings, repairing as necessary for a good seal at the bottom of the door.

And while the panel is off, inspect your handles, rods and lock to ensure they are lubed and working proper. If need be fix those issues like lube the joints in your window rollers and the joints in the handle and/or rod assemblies and locks.
