Default Removing the floor trim and the center console.

Can anyone tell me how to remove the floor trim pieces and the center console without breaking or scrating it.

Please provide pictures if you can.

The floor trim pieces are just held in with clips. Just pull them straight up.

Don't you have to pry the trim first? This kind of scares me to believe that I am going to break it.

You're talking about the trim on the floor by the doors right?

Who has taken their center console out? I'm gonna have to remove mine fairly soon, I'm also wondering how it comes out, I'm talking about the regular full length center console with the front bucket seats.

To remove the center console:

You might need to take both bucket seats out.

The rear, inner most bolt that holds each seat down also holds down the center console.

To get to the bolts, gently pull up on the plastic cap over them. I think the bolt is 18mm, but I could be wrong.

Anyway, take the bolts out, 4 per seat, and move the seats out of the way. You might be able to do this without completely removing the seats, but I was installing some stuff under the drivers seat, so that is what I did.

Once the seats are out of the way, push FORWARD on the center console. This will release the front clips. If you need to, the center tray on the automatic, or the trim around the stick on the manuals, can be pulled up to reveal the clips. You shouldn't need to do that though.

Once the front clips are released, you should be able to lift the center console out of the way.
