    Default How can I remove this bit?

    Hi Everybody,
    I need some help/advice on removing part of the centre console on a S3 205 GTI. I am planning on getting the center dash/facia covered in a green/black carbonfibre look and have pulled the dash apart and removed all parts but one.

    I'm trying to get at the bit just up from the gear stick which contains the little tray and then the bin with the swimg up lid. Sorry if the description is a bit vague, the camera decided not to work today.

    I have removed the entire section above it containing the stereo, clock, heating controls, a/c etc, but just can't seem to get out this last bit.

    Please help.

    Yep - done it about 6 years ago - also to a '91 S3 model. You're getting pretty specific, and my alchohol ravaged brain just can't get down to this level at the moment.......... I seem to remember two screws in there somewhere, either in the base of the tray compartment, or over the back - screwed back towards the rear of the car, but then again........

    You'll have to be pretty careful with your clearances on those plastic panels if you're getting them 'covered' as there isn't a lot of room for any builtup surfaces to put them back together.

    Good luck.....

    Thanks for the link pugsy, I had read this already and have the console moving but the rear section comes in and doesn't want to stretch to get past the centre/base section.

    I've had a few goes but fear of breaking it has held me back.

    Guess I'll try again.

    Thanks for the tip N5GTi6, but I've gone too far now to back down now. The console IS getting covered and WILL go back or I may have to drive off a cliff screaming...

    There is a nut at the rear of the lower section under the gearstick sock, and 1 or 2 ( I dont remember exactly ) just inside the hole where the stereo used to be holding the centre and lower halves together. I am not 100% sure but I think they are the ones you can just see in your picture you posted.

    Good luck
