Does anyone know how to remove the usb and aux jack hub in the little tray area in the center console. I cant seem to figure it out, every post I see about this its a different center console than mine. I want to take it out to connect a usb and aux jack to thr back of my aftermarket head unit.

Have not done this. But I know it begins with the removal of the plastic trim pieces around the shift console that lead upward towards the upper dash area.

After that, there are screws, etc, for additional removals. But I have not attempted it.

On my Infinity sound system looked at aftermarket radios for the fun of it, have their own aux and USB inputs, least some of them did.

I removed that module for two reason, could not open that little door to manual release the parking brake, could from underneath, put a bevel on it so I could release it. Also installed a rear power jack on the console, but for a remote USB and Aux input, on the front of the console so I wouldn't have cables dangling on the floor or getting tied up with the shift lever, just had to plug those into the existing USB and Aux inputs, cable is running inside the console.

Shop manual says to remove the gear shift knob first, but doesn't say how, just unclipped the boot and brought it over the knob, by unsnapping the frame, side panels, two screws as I recall, the entire shift module can be removed including that door with the USB and power jacks on it.

Really no access to the USB ports, all glued together, has a large connector at the rear of it for all the functions, mode control, electrically heated seats, not easy to remove nor plugged back in. Separate connectors for the power outlets. Need a plastic pry bar for this.

Never broke any snaps, manual warns constantly of this, would say this is not a job for the timid. But if you did, will not find access to the USB port or the Aux, buried deep and all glued in.

the harness i bought from crutchfield had the usb cable connector on it. i know your car is a later year, but if there is a harness available for it, that might be an easier way to go. i just installed a pioneer 8200nex with the crutchfield harness. also, crutchfield is a great source for info, i had to call them several times.

Radio4.jpg, shows the other end of that tray USB and Aux input connector into the radio.Wonder if Crutchfield has an adapter for this. Been dealing with Crutchfield for years with a bunch of kids that required more ear blasting radios.

Love those adapters, can unplug those and reinstall the OEM radio when you get rid of that car.

Anyone figure this out? I know this is super old post. My USB port has a bad connection and ordered new one ($40) but looks buried in there.

Oh man I was just telling my wife this is a need to do. I cant close the tray up front because of the wire and they did not engineer a pass through like the higher model Hyundais or makes.

My humble opinion on this, locking up two 12 volt cigar imitator sockets, USB and Audio Input Jack in that little cavity with a sliding door on it was stupid.

Rear disk caliper parking brake was improperly adjusted, prefer doing my own brake jobs myself because its my and my families life that depend on good brakes, and the only way to do this on the Elantra was to remove the entire center console. This was a good time to position the audio and USB input and to add an imitation 12 volt power outlet in an intelligent position. This was the only mod made. Don't have cords that can get tangled in the gear shift lever or on your feet.

Well, also had to add Splash shields the politically correct name for mud flaps, with all four tires stick out, can kick up stones wrecking your car doors and rear bumper, another stupid design. Dealer want 150 bucks to install them, but they can't put them on straight.
