Center Console Removal

Title speaks for itself. I need to know how to remove the center console in the XK. Has anyone done this before or know how to properly remove it without breaking anything? Thanks in advance.

That or, CRS strikes again.

Awsome.

There was a company at the S.E.M.A. show that makes custom fitted lockboxes that go inside the console.
I believe he removed and sent his to them so they could take measurements and create a new product.

He didn't remove it. He had an extra console he sent them.

Wish I could help, If I had my spare I could look at it and help you out. We will need to create a "how too" on this topic anyway so people can add the new gun locker when it is finished.

Been there, done that. PDF stands to be true- every bit as easy as the illustrations. Pop the rear cover off to expose 2 T25 screws (if my memory is correct) and under the rubber cupholder liner (just pull up- it's held in with several rubber tabs along the perimeter) is a 10mm(?) bolt helping hold things in place. Come to think of it, I think the ATC bezel has to be removed to free up the center console, and the dash taken off to free up the ATC bezel (06-07). This is sounding like a Give-A-Mouse-A-Cookie book, but it really doesn't take long to do. Hope this helps. I'll peek at the setup again when I get home tomorrow and double check I didn't miss anything, or include extra steps!

I knew it wouldnt take long to remove it and that it would be hard to do. I just wanted to make sure I didnt break anything cause Im really good at breaking stuff.

So is that trim stick really needed to remove the shift bezel?
