    Post centre console help

    I cant be bothered to replace it myself as i just unplugged one of the fan wires and i cant get it back in.

    So the question is, can i get another centre consol and spray it myself then take my car to vauxhall for them to swap over???

    and what sort of charge would it be?

    Thanks

    Lambo try this before you spend good money on a dealer fit. Remove the heater console from the centre dash. It unplugs really easily, just need to release the 4 metal tags holding it in place. Remove the centre dash entirely so you have more room. Check you've not snapped the heater control wire holders when you removed the wire. If you have you'll need either a new one or bodge the old one somehow. You can tilt the heater console down so you can see what your doing, don't bend it to far or you'll put a crease in the wires. Now try and fit the wire back in. If you get it located reinsert the heater console into the centre dash as you fit the dash.

    If you've tried all that and still no joy, ask if a site member is local enough to pop round and attempt it for you. Dealer will charge a fortune, 1hr at the very least.

    Oh and I know this is too late but you don't need to disconnect the heater wires to remove the centre dash, just remove the heater console as above and leave it in place.

    Maybe post how you managed it, as it may help someone else in the future who's doing a search.
