    How hard is it to remove the center console where

    How hard is it to remove the center console where the ashtray is ? I dropped something I need and it went down under the ashtray....

    Re: How hard is it to remove the center console where

    The instructions to remove that console are in the workshop manual. In a special section.

    Re: How hard is it to remove the center console where

    OK - thanks - how do I get a copy of the workshop manual?

    THANKS - that should help !

    Re: How hard is it to remove the center console wh

    Here's a 997 diagram of situation. Puzzle can be solved with patience. Too bad there's apparently no step by step 997 hack yet. Using Eric's 996 pdf above will serve to provide clues.

    Here are more instructions:

    Uh Larry....you really ought to read the thread first.

    Re: How hard is it to remove the center console wh

    Sorry for the repost!!

    Re: How hard is it to remove the center console wh

    If you follow those instructions you will break something. Step 1 is wrong. The leather boot is not attached to the plastic piece as shown. The boot snaps off and the plastic is attached to the console with screws. You must remove the boot first then the plastic...unless other 997's are different than my 997S cab.

    Re: How hard is it to remove the center console wh

    The man is absolutely correct. These instructions are wrong and the boot needs to be removed first to gain access to the screws than hold the plastic in place. Otherwise you can easily crack the silver horshoe trim ring that is plastic. The good news is that the shift knob does not have to be removed to remove the console.

    Re: How hard is it to remove the center console wh

    why not calling your Porsche dealer, get an appointment, drop by for 10 minutes, get it fixed, have a cup of coffee, look at some brochures, get it fixed, and avoid this whole mess! that's what I'd do!

    Re: How hard is it to remove the center console wh

    Before I spent two hours (not 10 min.) at the dealer I'd bend a coat hanger (not plastic) with some tape on the end and try to recover it myself. Am I the only one who wonders what he dropped?
