M2 TS 2009 Handbrake Console Removal?
« on: July 20, 2017, 05:01:19 PM »
Hey all,

My handbrake lever cover has become a bit loose - I suspect a bolt has worked its way loose and I was wondering how to safely remove the centre floor console so that I could get a good look at what I'm dealing with. The back of the console simply unclips but there is absolutely no give in the front. I've tried pushing forwards, pulling backwards and upwards. If I apply any more strength I fear I will break any plastic components that are holding it in place. If it's bolted to the floor I'd be confused as to how they install them from factory haha.

I've heard from another post quite a while back on here that it is held with christmas tree clips, but having lifted the back end up quite a bit and stuck a flashlight in there I can't see any signs of whats holding the thing in place.

It's a 3d 2009 TS 1.3 Model, if that helps any.

Cheers,

Henry

UPDATE

No luck I'm afraid, the 2010 model console must be of a different design because I can't see a way the unit in my car is two separate pieces. It's one complete piece, I've lifted the back end up and had a proper look under but can't for the life of me figure out what's holding it. It's not a clipping that's for sure. There's a single nut and bolt underneath the cup holder but it doesn't feel like it's attached to any plastic.
