EST TIME: 15 mins
I just purchased this 96 camry 5spd and as you can see how badly damaged the center console is.
Lucky for me i have a 92 camry xle auto im about about to junk.
I decided to share this with you guys since i didnt see this on the DIY list.
1st remove the shift cover. lift it up towards the rear and it will pop up. then remove the knob.
if you have an auto be careful with the electrical connector on the left side of it. just disconnect it when you lift it up.
2nd youll have 2 philip screws to remove.
3rd youll have (2) 12mm bolts in the center box and will need the extension for this.
4th now you can remove the rear part of the console, but be careful where it connects with the front part next to the shifter.
you got to lift it up and pull it towards the rear. Make sure you have the E-brake up.
Now remove these plastic philip plugs.
Now the Driver side.
i know it sux but you have to remove this whole section to get to
1 philp screw under it thats holding the center console from coming loose.
Remove the (4) 10mm bolts
Now remove the change draw that covers the fuse box and remove the 2 screws.
now the last screw and she's off
Now to the passenger side 1 screw on the bottom
use a pry bar or a flat head and pop it off. its held by a clip.
After that youll see 1 last screw.
Now you can remove the top half of the console but be careful with the light buld connector.
just simply pull it and it will disconnect.
Now would be the best time to change it if it is blown. both cars were :/
If you have AUTO just push the shift lock button and pull the shifter all the way back.
Now would be the best time for a bath
simply re install and your Done!
Now time for PAINT!
