Hi, I'm trying to figure out how to remove the center console that is between the front seats (you know, where the parking brake is). I need to temporarily remove it so I can wire up some additional power outlets, but for the life of me I don't see any screws or anything holding the center console down?!?

Any Suggestions? Thanks!
Eric

Mine just popped/slid forward and then I was able to just lift it up and over the parking brake.

To remove, pull up on the front lip. There are two snap fasteners (door-panel type). The rear has hooks underneath the flooring - pull too hard there and they'll break.

yeah, the center panel is probably one of the easiest palstic parts of the E to remove.

just take something flat (i.e. paint scraper or credit card or something similar)slide it under the front portion somewhere and pull up!

currently i run my speaker wires and RCA cables through there to my aftermarket amp

Lower center console removal

I just posted in my steering wheel cover post also but how do I remove the center console that is on the floor that the parking break is in? I dropped the needle to thread my steering wheel cover one and if it's easy enough to remove would just like to do that rather then searching for a new needle. Do I just pull it out? I don't see any screws. I'm guessing there are clips.
HELP!!!

You need to either push it towards the front of the E or the back of the E. But it goes in one of those directions and then lifts right up. I think I've read it only moves about 1/2-3/4" to release it.

Re: Lower center console removal

IIRC (TSM is at home), you just pop it up on one end, then slide forward to release the other end. Easy, no tools.

Re: Lower center console removal

I just installed a power outlet there last weekend. You need to pull the front
straight up. The front uses those plastic fasteners that are often used to
attach door panels. Then slide it forward.
