The picture links appear to be dead. Any chance of getting them rehosted?

Bwahaha!

How about a picture of my chewed up hands? That metal bracket on the console is sharp! :O

Have a nice sharp pen knife to caarrreeffuully cut the sleeves and not nick the wires...

use zip ties to lash all the wires up when done so they do not rattle inside the console

Tools required. Knife, Phillips screw driver, thin flathead to pry, 10mm socket, cutter

My vocabulary may be incorrect because I have no auto background but deal with it. Also this is how I did it, there maybe be an easier way but also deal with it

First step, pop out that awc box with a knife or something strong and thin and unhook the wire harness, also take out the awc button from the box and save it for the dash location, simple process just look at it





Using a 10mm socket, take out bolts inside the center console so you can remove this later. With a very thin flathead, thinner the better, pry up on the plastic cover for the cupholders area or whatever it is to dismantle the center area. see next step.






Pushing toward the cup holders where my fingers are, then sliding them under allows you to grab and pull upward to unhook some of the plastic clips, work this piece loose and take it out.





Unhook the button that holds the shift cover A, and B take the shift knob off.






Then C. pull up on the shifter area and work with it to loosen it free,






Then you can pull it over and let it hang, I did not unhook any wires, just let it hang there. Remove screws in the photo to remove more plastic on the console






Pull out the whole pastic covering off the center console. This allows you to get your fingers in the tight spots and gives you more space, this step may be avoidable but it worked well for me. this is a repeat photo.








Take out screws 1, 2, and 3. Open the fuse box and pull on that piece and work it loose until that piece hangs free from the top but still is connected from the bottom. The knee airbag piece stays where it is, I was cautious around the airbag.






Take out a blank button, I used the one on the right because of; (question for anyone: what is connected to the blank button on the left here in my photo??)






Then you have to free the awc wires from the rest of the wires for the center console, which means for at least the 2011, I had to cut these ziptie wire holders which were a pain because you have to be very careful and they were in difficult spots. There were 3 I think. You will then have to free them of electrical tape and you have to get it free enough to bring the wires over to the left part of the dashboard. Didn’t really take detailed photos here but you can easily figure it out. Bring the wires over and connect that awc button to the dash location. Once you get that far I think you’ll easily manage assembling everything back together




hope that works for everyone.
cheers
Nice write up. Do you by any chance have the images that go along with it? Thanks!
