    strange problem

    hi all


    I've removed my lower din tray, all the wires and stuff are now exposed where the din tray used to be,

    tonight my m8, dropped my bluetooth gps receiver into the lower din slot thinking that there was a tray they (it was very dark),

    all i then heard was "oh s**t"

    and now after grazing up all our hands trying to find it, i've not got a clue where its gone. is there anyway to remove the dash from the lower din tray downwards as i really need my reciever???


    how hard can it be?????

    please help
    Observe the masses and do the opposite

    Have a look at the How to below, it shows how to change the center console but you could just use the removal bit!

    THE STATEMENTS MADE ABOVE ARE MERELY MY OPINION AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS STATEMENTS OF FACT UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED

    lol

    I have dropped dash screws down there many's a time!!

    If you take the ash tray out, you'll have better visibility. The gear stick bit and hand brake bit will come off too.

    as rob says - remove the gear surround etc and if u still cant get to the offending article then remove the entire centre console...only a few screws hold it in place - draw that backwards and you should see the little bugger.....
