I fitted a new handbrake and GPS aerial so thought I'd post a couple of photos. There is a comprehensive guide for removal and refitting from B&M though some photos aren't too clear.

Anyway pretty self explanatory - the console looks like this when removed:



and what it covers:



the aerial was just routed to the rear of the console and is magnetic.

Nice pics! I've had my centre consoles out a few times but never took any pics so thanks for this!Smile

Why did you choose there for the GPS aerial when there's a GPS aerial slot in the centre of the dash underneath the alarm LED? Is it for easier cable routing?

Did you have a snapped gear change cable at some point?

I've put it there on previous cars as it appears to work well - it's also very easy to route the cable - especially if you're removing the handbrake.

The previous owner may have had a snapped cable - why do you ask?

Noticed the black block on the shift cable.

That's fairly standard - it's to stop wear under vibration.

Interesting, never seen one before. Any particular cars it's fitted to as I haven't seen one on my old C4S or my GT3?

Not spotted this thread before... useful pic.

I might just try to fit my centre console myself. Is the handbrake tricky? I have a carbon fibre one on back order, and may try fitting them both.

All very easy, just take care not to damage the tip of the handbrake when moving the console back into place.......oh and try not to forget re-attaching the centre-console bin microswitch Wink

Does the centre console need to come out to fit the handbrake?

The centre console's now been painted and is ready to fit, but the handbrakes not due til end Jan, so getting a bit impatient. On the other hand, didn't want to do the whole job again when the hanbrake arrives.

If you are fitting a new console make sure it's supplied with the sound insulation pads. It's almost impossible to remove the existing ones to swap over.
