Stuck Cubby Box
Posted 10 July 2012 - 09:11 PM
I am trying to remove the slim cubby box inside the car to fit a double. The box is small and impractical and leaves a gap of around 20mm between it and the stereo. It looks awful and I keep loosing things down the gap. It sees to be screwed in from behind but I have no idea how to get in behind to the possible screws. Do I need to take all the interior apart to get to the back?
All help gratefully received!!

I'm going to sound the typical female when I say how do I do that? God I'm so sorry! Lol

There are 4 screws in the middle section that runs between the seats. 1 either side near the gear lever, 1 under the ash tray and 1 in the arm rest storage compartment. That will then lift out of the way. You've then got another screw at the bottom of the panel just under the said cubby box and two behind the air vents, that panel will then be able to be removed, just make sure to disconnect any wires that may need to be disconnected (electric window switch, hazards/popup etc).
Hope that is of some help to you.

While your centre console is off you can change the gearlever gaiter if it is worn. Thirty seconds once if you are in there anyway!
or much cheaper in plain black. The handbrake gaiter just drags over the top of the existing plastic one (ten minutes struggle for that one but both fit well).
There is a big MX5 trade in BMW E36 cubbies with built in clocks, so I suppose other DIN cubbies should fit.

Luckily I don't need to replace the handbrake or gear stick gaiter as they have been replaced already for red ones (thank goodness)
