Hello all,<p>NooB here!! Have been reading up for about 8 months now and this is a great place!<p>I searched the archives and forum for threads on changing my centre console. I found these:<p><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=35446" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=35446</A><p><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=33938" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=33938</A><p>among 24 other threads about changing the centre console. One of them had scanned and hosted instructions on how to change the console here: <A HREF="http://www.familywebnet.com/~billy" TARGET="_blank">http://www.familywebnet.com/~billy</A> but its gone now.<p>If anybody has the instructions on how to change the console, and could post a link to them it would be great!<p>TIA!

Re: S40 2.4 centre console change to real aluminium (EVFreak)

I don't have the instructions on the pc, but it's a really easy job<p>First, you have to remove the black plate covering the cd player/screen by inserting a screwdriver on each side of the cd player and that face plate and pressing. (dont insert it inside the cd player).<p><A HREF="http://img208.imageshack.us/my.php?image=centerpanelremoval2ww.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img208.imageshack.us/img208/501/centerpanelremoval2ww.th.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p>Then you push up the panel that has the cigarrete lighter and you'll see 2 more screws. <p>Then open you glove box compartment and use a knife to remove the panel behind the center console. It's easier this way.<p>Proced to disconnect cables, and removing the screen.<p>That's about it <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>PS: You'll need a torx key (i don't know if this is how you spell it)<p>
