As per my other post, I removed my centre console to fit one that I had colour coded.
This was on a TF and there may be differences on Fs.
I followed Tonys post http://www.apttony.co.uk/Servicing/CentreConsole.html
but felt it didn't have the CJJ standard of 100 photos
First thing to do is remove your radio/head unit. this all depends on the type you have. It could be the wire type tools, keys or screws. Make sure if it is a coded unit, that you have the codes, otherwise you are stuffed once you disconnect the power. Mine just forgets half it's settings, which is annoying enough.
I then removed the top air vent to give me more room to work. This is held in by 2 plastic lugs at the top and 2 at the bottom. Carefully lever the 2 bottom lugs out and the unit should pivot out on the top 2. Be carefull what you use to do this as you can end up marking the vent or dash if you use too much force or a sharp object.
The centre console is held in by 5 spring clips and one plastic locator at the base.
This is what the clips look like. The circled bit is the bit that you need to push with a screwdriver to release the clip.
Start with the top 3 clips. Put your hand in where the radio was (watch out for sharp edges) and gently pull until you create enough of a gap to expose the clips.
You then want to use a long narrow implement, such as a screwdriver, and push the release lug on the spring clip. If you do this correctly the clip should release while you are pulling on the console. You shouldn't need to lever the console out. In the picture the screwdriver is pushing on the centre of the clip and NOT levering the console.
Next you should remove the gear knob and gaitor. The knob simply unscrews (unless you have an aftermarket one). The gaitor should just lever out as the silver plastic ring is only held in place by 4 plastic lugs. Again take care not to mark or damage the console.
You can now lever the very bottom of the console (circle 1) so that the plastic lug comes free. Once this is out you can slide the bottom of the console towards you, releasing the 2 spring clips as you did for the top 3.
Put the gear lever into 4th to give a bit of clearance and move the console carefully towards you until you have enough clearance to access the electrical connections.
Carefully unclip and remove the 3 plugs from the top.
Small White = Oil Temp Gauge
Small Black = Clock
Large White = hazard switch
Now carefully remove the plugs from the window switches, fog light switches etc
2 large White plugs = windows (can't really mix them up)
Green plug = Front fogs
Blue plug = Rear fogs
Black plug = Not used on mine. Possibly rear window or A/C
They are keyed, so you shouldn't be able to mix them up.
