    Top console removal

    How do you remove the cover for the top console (the lights and buttons around the rear-view mirror)? I need to see if the folks who installed my XM radio put the antenna up in there. Thanks.

    Re: Top console removal

    Look in the owner's manual for instructions. Look under the section on how to open the sunroof in cases of an emergency. It should tell you all you need to know on how to remove the dome light cover.

    Re: Top console removal

    I'd try pulling straight down on the trim. "Everything" snaps together these days. With precision plastic molding screws are often unnecessary and add to costs.

    Here's a clue, it looks like you'd prise the switches out to get to the screws.

    Try pulling down on trim first.

    Re: Top console removal

    NO way! Don't pull straight down..there's a clip you have to get to first. Instructions are in the owner's manual. You'll break something if you try pulling it straight down. I know because I replaced my plastic one with the leather version a couple months ago.

    Re: Top console removal

    Oops, good to know the facts.

    My guess would have been to __TRY__ pulling down. After exerting a certain amount of force and BEFORE BREAKING IT experience would dictate pulling down isn't the way it works.

    Here's the proper way as you said:
