Thumbs up Console Lights All-In-One How-To

Okay boys (and girls) here we go. Everything you ever wanted to know about changing light bulbs, clock colour, dismantling your center console in one handy dandy thread.

Tools needed: nothing but a phillips (otherwise known as cross) screwdriver. Really. It's not as hard as you thought it was.

Let's begin.

Begin at the center box (armrest). Unscrew the two screws holding the box down, and pull the whole unit from the back up, releasing it from the two clips at the front.

Next, unscrew the two screws, and disconnect the cable which powers the cigarette lighter, ashtray, and shifter (if you have auto) bulbs.

Now to the left lower part, beside the pedals. Using your screwdriver, unscrew the plastic screw holding the panel in, and pry away the panel. It has tabs that attach it to the center console.

Using the head of your screwdriver, push the center part of this little ingenious device in, and pull out the grommet.

Now to the right passenger side. This panel is completely smooth, held in with clips. Pry gently outward with constant force, it should pop right out.

Once again, with the ingenious grommet, push your screwdriver head into the middle, and pop the piece out. You have now completely released the center console, and it should lift right out with the proper angles. If you drive auto, it helps to have your car in neutral at this point to help guide the console out.

To change the bulb in the ashtray, remove the ashtray and replace with desired bulb colour. This is the bulb that lights the ashtray when the ashtray is open.

Flip over the center console. You'll see the cigarette lighter assembly, the circled item is the bulb you want to replace.

For auto drivers, this is the bulb you want to change out. A simple twist, and it comes right out.

Moving on to the gauge cluster and clock mod, first remove the two screws holding in the top of the gauge cluster.

With the gauge cluster loose, pull it slightly out of its sitting place. Now on to the climate controls. Twist all knobs all the way to the left, this makes it easier to put them back in later. Simply pull them out.
