Re: Handbrake plastic

How do you get the back bit of the centre console off so I can get to it easier. I'm going to replace the broken handbrake bit this weekend but I'm scared of breaking things :/

Re: Handbrake plastic

There's a cover below the A/C vent for the rear seats. You should be able to put your hand between the console and the floor (it's pretty tight), then pull. The plastic is pretty flexible, won't break. There are several screws there; mind you there's one screw on the bottom of the armrest compartment too.

If you try to replace the plastic without unscrewing the front end of the central console, be careful as it is very easy to scratch things while trying to fit the new plastic. It's doable, but you should be careful.

Why don't you use eLearn, it's pretty good for that sort of things.

Thanks for the explanation I'll have a crack at that at the weekend.

You'll have to point me in the direction of the elearn. Sounds useful!

I would like buy one to mine (broken) and replace it myself. Is this in eBay?

Thanks!

Re: Handbrake plastic

Simple pull out the broken plastic with little force and it will eventually pop up, then I used the old plastic as template for the new one. As material I've used thin flexible plastic on which I have glued carbon sticker too look more attractive.
