Their instructions are far from enlightening.
You need to use a little muscle when pulling upwards, don't worry you shouldn't break anything. At worst you may have a little silver clip come off but I doubt that will happen. If it does it will just snap back on.I for the life of me cannot remove the crash pads next to the center console. I left a lot of marks but the thing refuses to come off. Can someone explain how this thing is attached and/or provide pictures?
Hey Fear, there's a pictorial about the removal of these "crashpads" in the same thread you and I saw, bought and are waiting for-our cupholder lights...When prying with a flat-tip screwdriver, wrap it with protective tape, and apply protective tape around the related parts, to prevent damage.
• Put on gloves to protect your hands.
1. Using a screwdriver or remover, remove the crash pad garnish (A).
2. Using a screwdriver, remove the knob (A) and boots (B).
3. Using a screwdriver or remover, remove the console upper cover (A).
question I have for those of you that have removed this...do you pry/pull up on the rear of the pad...then pull it backwards (towards the rear of the car)? or something completely different? and the shifter knob....we shift to neutral (emergency brake applied and/or blocks in use for safety) and pull upwards on it. i can't find where the exact removal process is located in HMA Service.
just trying to get prepared for when my cupholder lights arrive.
